Mrs. Irene Lawrance 



Being an SMUS old boy and long time boarder at the school has 
left myself and friends feeling an attachment to it in a paternal sort 
of way. Arriving at School House at the young age of 14 years allowed 
for one to become 'semi-adopted' by the older students, prefects, and 
long time staff members. As the years rolled by, we inherited these 
roles and our bonds with the staff and each other became family like. 
Some members of the staff even acquired 'immediate family' names 
because of the special ways they performed their tasks. You would 
tell 'Mum ' (Barbara Leonard) how you got that cut on your knee as 
she gently tended it or we would 'shoot the breeze' with 'Uncle Tony' 
(Tony Cordle) in the bookroom on Sunday afternoon. I feel especially 
privileged to know my grandparents, who are some of my favorite peo- 
ple in the world, and SMUS provided a type of special 'grandparen- 
taV relationship for me while I was a student there. 

Mrs. Lawrance was first introduced to me via the laundry room, 
as the lady who returned money, forgetfully left in trouser pockets, 
to you, the money secure in a sealed envelope. She was there with 
cookies after school, and for sure, she did not forget cards at Christ- 
mas, Valentine's Day, or Easter. She was always very thoughtful, 
and her reliable smile at 7:00 am gave each day a warm beginning. 
I can only compare her sweetness to the love given to me by my grand- 
parents. 

Mrs. Lawrance was from Saskatchewan; in fact, her family had 
a farm in the Qu'Appelle Valley where my grandfather was bom. On 

several occasions she shared with me stories about farm life on the prairies - making comparisons between the old 

and the new, exchanging photographs, and so on. 
All this was a part of the SMUS which I knew, lived, and loved. Once we leave SMUS, our memories become so 

vivid that it becomes difficult for us to picture change . . . or even want it. 1 was truly saddened to hear of Mrs. 

Lawrance's passing; her unique gifts and kindness will not be encountered again for a very long time. However, I 

am comforted in believing that her goodness is being rewarded, and I sense that she is happy and at peace.

Headmaster's Address 




The School Year started in a most unusual way with the residence bursting into flames 
at the hands of an arsonist on August 29th, a few days before boarders were due to 
return. Luckily, the good burghers of Victoria were receptive to our calls for assistance, 
and within 10 hours accommodation had been provided for all boarders expecting to 
be housed in New House. Parents of the school and strangers alike were most generous 
in offering their houses to provide a sanctuary for our resident students, many of whom 
had already started their pilgrimages to the school from as far away as Sweden, Papua 
New Guinea, Nepal, and Australia. It was comforting to know that the City of Vic- 
toria considered this incident as severe a blow as the community ofS.M. U.S. did itself. 
To everyone who was even minutely involved, I am eternally grateful. 

From my first interview with the local media, on site at 5:30 AM, I maintained a 
perspective that though this incident was a setback, we would recover and, like the 
Phoenix, rise from the ashes. This view was given more as a gesture of positive thinking 
rather than an act of uncanny clairvoyancy on my part; yet how true this thinking 
was to become, for the year evolved to be one of the most successful the school has 
yet experienced in view of accomplishments in the academic and sporting arenas. Much 
of the success must be attributed to the ambience created in the school by the Grade 
XII class who, in turn, were aided and supported by our dynamic faculty. As the Grade 
XII's go, so goes the school in some cases. After the experiences of this Senior class 
in reaching the Grade XII pinnacle, not even an inferno would have daunted their 
spirits. En route, this grade of students had been the Grade IX class shifted to the 
Middle School, only to return the following year to the Senior School. Even at this 
stage we knew they were going places. It seemed that these students were involved in 
every major change the school was undergoing, and, subsequently, were called, rather affectionately, the guinea-pig year. 

When the experimentation was over, the Grade XII class had pulled off some unprecedented accomplishments. In 
the National Mathematics Competition, it finished FIRST in Canada. Two students won international caps, not in sport, 
but in Physics and Mathematics. Michael Montour was chosen to represent Canada in the Physics Olympiad in Havana, 
Cuba; Mark Van Raamsdonk was to do the same but in Mathematics in Sweden. Both did very well with Michael Mon- 
tour gaining SECOND place in the World, only one half point behind the winner from the Soviet Union. 

When the Provincial Scholarship results emerged in August, the Grade XII's had won 51 Scholarships, the highest 
ever reached by SMUS. Advanced Placement results were comparable with 82% of the passes being at the 'A ' Grade. 

In sports the First XV won the Howard Russell Rugby Final and then proceeded to capture the Provincial Title by 
beating Semiahamoo in the championship final at U.B.C. in May. By setting such a pace, the Seniors engendered the 
example for the whole school to follow: no less than 6 Island Titles were gained by teams from S.M.U.S. 

It is difficult isolating names of those who made an impact on the ethos of the school because many students would 
emerge; ones I cannot overlook, however, in view of the leadership role they played, are the Head Girl and Boy, Nadia 
Herb and Scott McQueen, and the School Captain Scholars, Kirstin Semmens and Mark Van Raamsdonk. The harmony 
that existed within their microcosm spread advantageously throughout the Graduating Class and rippled through the 
whole school. For the special effect these members had they deserve the highest of praise. 

Perhaps the destruction of New House did stimulate extra effort from the Senior students during the school year; 
many believe these students would have had the same impact without the conflagration by dint of their special verve 
and talent. For certain the fire had an impact in one major area of school life: it became the decision-maker in con- 
sidering the future plans of the school. 

It did so on the basis of what had to be provided on the Richmond Road Campus to replace resident accommodation; 
as a result the decision was made to invest more comprehensively in order to build the jewel of all campuses. A start 
has been made with 6 magnificent hoarding houses, level playing fields and the placement of Wenman Pavilion in a 
more suitable locale. There is still more to come with the sale of the Racquet Club and the building of a new Middle 
School on the Senior Campus. 

With the talent emerging from the junior grades, the immediate ability of this year's Grade XII students and plans 
to develop the Senior Campus even further, the School's future looks full of promise. To all students leaving S.M.U.S. 
and continuing their education elsewhere, I wish you good fortune and offer an invitation to re-visit the school which 
I hope has prepared you well and in which you can, as alumni, feel some pride and integrity. 



Board of Governors 

It is a great honour and delight for me to be asked to say a 
few words to the 1 991 Edition of the Red. Black and Blue. 

You have all achieved a great deal in the last year; adapting 
to the destruction of the fire, performing superbly on the sports 
field and achieving excellent academic results. You worked well 
as a team and each one of you should be proud of your own 
success. 

I hope that in the future you will remember not only your 
contribution to the school, but what the school has done for 
you. There will be students in the future who could use your 
help, time and advice. 

When you go into life, always remember to try to have a ba- 
lanced life while at the same time trying to achieve your best. 
In addition, help your community and those who are less for- 
tunate than yourselves. 

To those students who will be returning to the school next 
year, the grade 12 class has set a fine example for you to follow. 
I hope that you will be able to maintain their high standards 
of loyalty, exellence and dignity. 

Christopher M. Considine, 
Chairman of the Board 




Yearbook 



Thanks are due to many hard working individuals who gave up much 
of their free time to put together the 90-91 yearbook. To Jennifer 
Mortimer and Kate Jacobs, the co-editors, goes much credit. We are 
very grateful to Jennifer for the time spent during her summer va- 
cation. Closeted away in Room 37 whence we had transported all the 
boxes, files etc. in the expectation of seeing our "home" removed 
to make way for new Science Labs. In September we were back in 
Portable 2 where the new yearbook staff, headed by Jennifer Duguid 
and Noelle Davis, took up the task of completing the book. 

Thanks also are due to Ash Jaffer (Photos), Brian Chan (Cover 
Art and Dividers), Jennifer Popkin, Chris Blohm, Gillian Robertson, 
Sandie Yew, Joanna Piercy, Mark Blondeau and Winnie Leung. 

I'm sure there are others who have done write-ups, typed copy and 
scrounged photos - Thank you for all your valuable support and as- 
sistance.

New Experiences Key 



To Learning Adventure 



^ 



Director's Forward 




Recalling the highlights of the past school year, it is clear that a healthy balance 
was maintained between the anticipated academic standards and the creative activ- 
ities. The latter contributed to engendering the community spirit for which the Ju- 
nior School is renowned. 

The total school population remained stable at 148 students. With 35 Grade Five 
students enrolled, it was possible to create two, ideally sized, parallel classes. Through- 
out the year the Grade Five students maintained an exceptionally high academic 
standard resulting in ten students on the honour roll, nine received an award in 
the Royal Commonwealth Essay Contest, as well as twenty-five percent receiving 
an outstanding mark in the National Mathematics League Contest. 
The majority of this class formed the school orchestra which played at the Prize 
Giving Ceremony. In addition to this, the Grade Five String Ensemble was invited to play at the Honours Festival 
Concert in May. 

The highlight for the Grade Five students was their involvement in ' 'Clowns", under the direction of Douglas Manson- 
Blair, seconded from the Middle School. This was a truly spectacular performance, in which student experienced 
growth in self-confidence and stage presence. 

As usual, the staff have been highly committed to the school, and, in addition to their classroom work, have provided 
ingenious, stimulating activities. All the grades have experienced several interesting field trips. 

Several special days were organised this year, among them the House Hallowe'en mask-making competition and 
pumpkin run; and 'CamavaV when Madame Davis transformed our gymnasium into an icy, winter scene, invoking 
aid from the parents so that the students were able to simulate the events included in the Quebec festival. 

The Junior School parents revived the 'May Day' tradition and this was a memorable event with the students already 
requesting a repeat performance next year. Under the tutelage of Mrs. Carolyn Jones, a contingent of students per- 
formed the traditional 'Maypole Dance!, which was followed by the crowning of the Queen and Lord of the May, 
and then the seasonal games. 

This year we say farewell to Mr. Nick Coghlan who is leaving to take a position in Ottawa. We wish him and his 
wife success in their future endeavours and know that Nick takes with him fond memories of the Junior School. 
I would like to personally thank all staff, parents and students for their blended assistance and energy in making 
the past year at the Junior School such a resounding success.

PIRATE, PIPATE 

Pirate, Pirate, where is your gold? 
On a map in the clammy hold. 

Pirate, Pirate, what do you take? 
Gold and jewels sunk in a lake. 

Pirate, Pirate, who is your foe? 
Only the best from San Francisco. 

Pirate, Pirate, how do you walk? 
With a peg leg limp on the dock.

IF I WOKE UP WITH FROG LEGS 

One day if I woke up with frog legs 
I would be Mr. Bounce. I would win 
every cross-country, track and 
field, and swimming race. I would 
show off about it and everyone 
would laugh. I would jump and walk 
at the same time. It would be 
likerock-and-talk, but bounce- 
and-walk. I would always read frog 
and toad books and I would go fly 
hunting every night.

THE NARCISSUS DAFFIDTL 

Daffodils are a beautiful golden 
or cream colour and have a trumpet- 
like cup in the centre, with petals 
that flow out like a cloud. A sea 
of yellow is a beautiful sight and 
when the wind blows, it's like wave 
on golden wave. Daffodils are very 
graceful and the petals sway and 
dance with the wind.

THE LION 

There he sat, 

The king of his land, 

Sitting there surveying. 

The animals of the jungle. 

They will not come near him 

For fear that he 

Will scratch them with his claws. 

His great mane around him. 

All brown and fluffy. 

His body is all slick. 

And on the lookout is the king. 

I would not go near him 

For fear that he 

Would get upset. 

For he is the King. 

Roaring , 

As he moves , 

Thinking, Moving, Sliding, 

Through the jungle. 

He goes anywhere. 

For no-one. 

Will stop him. 

They are too afraid 

For he has no pursuers.

WAR 

It's not only blood or bombs or guns. 
It's death. 

Indeed it is violent but that's not it, 
I see families crying. . .crying. 
Father, brother, husband gone. 

It's not exciting; it's sad. 

It's not fun; it's scary. 

Yes, it is interesting reading it in books. 

But live in your life it's different. 

I repeat, not exciting or fun, scary and sad. 

I see results, 

I see handicapped, 

I see mental hospitals ... full , 

I see deaf, I see blind. 

It's no game, it's death.

STORM 

The Sea is roaring like a lion. 

The air thick like pea soup. 

Seagulls flittering all over the place. 

Waves slashing th rocks like blades of steel 

hitting each other. 
Lightning, raining, thundering. 

by Chrissy Lavdovsky Gr . 5 



THE HOCKEY PLAYER 

He leaped off the bench 

And skated across the rink 

Preparing for the face-off. 

His teeth were gritted, 

His eyes a flaming blue 

He slapped at the puck 

And passed it up 

While he tore up the ice. 

He skated for the centre 

The goalie glared, 

He received a pass. 

He flicked at the puck 

It flew across the air 

As if it was a bird. 

The goalie's teeth clenched 

It whizzed by his head 

There was a yell of Victory 

As he skated off the ice.

Thank You, Volunteers 

In the morning, crossing guards 
Helping you get to school yards. 
Helping you to cross the street. 
Guiding children 's little feet. 

Mrs. Campbell's crew is here 
In the library through the year, 
Helping you to take a look 
At a library picture book. 

On the Tuesday afternoons. 
They are in the big art room. 
They are helping Mrs. Forbes 
And the students with art forms. 

Pizza helpers are the best 
Heating pizzas . . . chill the rest. 
Thursdays are our days to munch 
Our delicious pizza lunch. 

Skating helpers Thursdays, too. 
Helping grades three, one and two. 
Helping children learn to glide 
On the slippery ice inside!

MIDDLE SCHOOL 




A COLLAGE OF 



CULTURAL EXPERIENCE 



Middle School Director's Foreword 




The school year 1990-91 has been memorable indeed; a year replete 
with outstanding accomplishments in every discipline. As you read on, 
this statement will be verified again and again in images and words. 

I am indeed bursting with pride and a bit overwhelmed when 1 con- 
template the depth of talent, enthusiasm, dedication and commitment 
which has been forthcoming from faculty and students alike. We are 
a team and a school family. Our mortar has been tested this year in times 
of sorrow but the strength which the Middle School members drew from 
one another was a real testimony to the depth of our commitment. 

To those staff members who have chosen to alter their career paths, 
I say thank you for your contributions and know that I speak for all 
of us who remain in wishing you every future success: Fukiko Iwamoto, 
Duncan Kerkham, Nick Coghlan, Todd Manning and Lex McMaster. 

To the Grade VIII students: you have been a special group of young 
people to work with, your futures look extremely bright, we shall miss 
each and every one of you! Team spirit is what gives this school an edge 
over the competition - you have been leaders in that arena. 



I have heard from scores of parents that our Guest of Honour at this year's Prize Night delivered the most mean- 
ingful address they had ever experienced. For that reason, we include his words across the pages of this yearbook. 

Marilyn Levitt 
Director 
Middle School

On a recent occasion I heard some members of the public at large refer to the students at St. Michaels as "the cream of the crop. •'This comment 
reminded me of a story told about the famous playwright. Samuel Beckett. For a brief period in his career, he taught at Campbell College in 
Belfast, Ireland. When someone told him that he was teaching the cream of Ulster, he replied. ■'Yes, rich and thick! '■ So we need to be somewhat

careful in accepting such approbation! 

It is an honour and a privilege to be asked to address this gathering tonight. Quite honestly, my first reaction was to decline the honour, for 
two reasons. First, I knew from my own previous prize nights over a period of many years, as a student and as a parent, that the members of

the audience await the speaker with considerable hope and anxiety: with hope that the speaker will be interesting, humourous, and/or stimulaUtig. 
and with anxiety that he or she will muse, wander and preach us all into boredom. So I knew that this would be far more demanding than giving 
a lecture or a paper at a conference, where the expectations are somewhat more modest and where 1 at least have some previous experience with

the content and format. The second reason was that I really didn 't know what I could possibly say that was in any way new or enlightening, or 
the least bit funny. My first thoughts about Prize Night left me with mixed feelings and quite confused, and therefore apprehensive about accepting 
such a responsibility. However, two factors led me to accept. The first is the fact that I am always encouraging students at the university to take 39

how could I with any integrity decline such a challenge . . the opportunity to make a really big mistake? 

Secondly, I decided that if I remained true to the fundamental belief that lies at the heart of any worthwhile educational or child development 
philosophy, I couldn't go too far wrong. The belief to which I am referring is, ''look to the young people for your answers, not simply to text 41

books and theories." So, instead of purchasing Steve Allen's book on the art of public speaking (which perhaps I should still do!), 1 obtained 
Mrs. Levitt's permission to interrupt four classes at the Middle School in order to ask the students themselves what Prize Night means to them. 
42 / thought that if I was able to tune into their experiences and thoughts about Prize Night, I might learn what my message ought to be.

Three weeks ago, I distributed a one-page handout with 4 questions on it, to one grade 6 class, one grade 7 class, and two grade 8 classes. I 
received 77 response sheets back from the students, and I want to share with you now what I learned from them, the daughters and sons, brothers 
and sisters, and grandchildren of many of you here.

The first thing I learned was that I was not alone in having mixed feelings about prize night. It became very evident that prize night means

About 600 separate comments were made by the 77 students in response to the four questions. The first question had to do with their thoughts 
about Prize Night in general: the second with memories of specific Prize Nights the students had experienced. The third question asked what new 45

GIRLS' BASKETBALL 

Finishing in second-place overall, the Girls' Grade 6 Night League team boasted a fab- 
ulous season! Led by top scorer Carys Jones, and cheered on by team members and par- 
ents alike, we were successful in all but three games. Most important, we had a BLAST! 

A motley crew of grade six and seven girls, ISA/VISA basketball teams "Aurora" and 
"Borealis" dribbled the path to victory this year. Top scorers Liz Clough and Carys Jones 
led "Aurora" to a first-place victory in the ISA tournament. Congratulations to "Bor- 
ealis" too, for a short but successful season.

The summer and fall of 1990 brought together a group of fifteen multi-talented young men, each with an abundance 
of ability and burning desire to excel. Through weeks and months of hard work and practice under the tutelage of 
Coaches Jones, Pollock, Alford, and Manson-Blair; as well as the occasional return of former national team coach. 
Bob Bearpark, the boys honed and polished their skills with the ultimate goal being victory at the Canadian Inde- 
pendent Schools Tournament at St. Johns Ravenscourt in Winnipeg. 

The strength of the team became apparent as S.M. U. went undefeated with perfect 7-0 record in the VISAA League 
and captured the Victoria championship. 

The team was prepared and primed to field their best effort in Winnipeg and what an outstanding tournament it 
turned out to be. After eight consecutive victories, including a 3-1 shoot out win over Lower Canada College in the 
semi-finals, the S.M.U. team eventually, for the first and only time in the season, went down to a narrow 0-1 defeat 
at the hands (feet) of St. George's Vancouver in the final game. There was not a dry eye as the boys left the field 
with their hands held high secure in the knowledge that they had given their all for themselves and their school. 

Of particular mention was the play of Cris Streeter, deemed by all to be the most valuable player in the tournament, 
the leadership of team captain, Tim Tewsley, the tenacity of our defensive spearhead, Hayden Thompson, and the 
exuberance and skill of our two Grade Six students, James Pollock and Edward Fairhurst, who will undoubtedly, 
lead the SMU Under-13 team next year at Appleby College in Toronto.

A small but select and enthusiastic group played cricket this term. Often the weather 
and ground condition were against us but everyone played hard and learnt a great deal. 

Five of our players played for Victoria against Vancouver on Sunday June 2nd and 
enjoyed a good day across the water in Vancouver. Philip Bazzard and Richard Ingle 
were top scorers with 12 and Sacha Cameron was next with 10. 

Others in the team were Jesse Frender and Matthew Wenman. We also played Stelly's 
School on Thursday June 6th and won an interesting game. For many it was their first 
formal game of cricket. Others in the cricket group: Patrick Frisby, James Gillion, Philip

GRADE 6/7 

The 1991 Spring Badminton season brought in- 
credible results to Middle School. In league play, 
a total of thirty-seven different students represented 
the school at various times and after three months 
of practice in the mornings, lunch hours, and after 
school the S.M.U. Middle School team fared, al- 
most embarrassingly well in the Annual V.I.S.A.A. 
Tournament. When all the shuttles were brought 
to rest on the gym floor of the Racquet Club, the 
Middle School team had won 15 of 16 blue ribbons. 
Congratulations must be extended to all students 
who participated this year! 

GRADE 8 

A first place finish in the midget division of the 
G. V.J.S. Badminton Championships capped a most 
successful season for the SMU Middle School bad- 
minton team. Fortified with the addition of three

His tiny arms held fast, and wouldn't let me go. 

Those big blue eyes filled with tears 

That streamed down his cheeks. 

He whispered into my ear, 

"Don't leave me Daddy! Don't leave me! 

There'll be no one to be my Daddy!" 

I held him close, and all at once 



Would he never have a Daddy? 
Would he be like me? 

A cold hand clasped my shoulder, 
A voice as sharp as glass 
.Rang through my head. 

"Come on, say goodbye. It's almost time to leave." 
My little boy let go of me and slowly walked away. 
I wept and wept and wept for him. 
But it did not bring him back

Growing up 

Screaming fights with mothers 
Not knowing which way to turn 
Confused to the point of frustration 
Trying so hard to learn 



Wishing the world would stop turning 'round 
So you could stop to take a breath; 
And run back into your mother's arms 
Where childhood used to rest 

Scared of what lies ahead in life. 
What if it's all the same? 
Teasing, and yelling, and hating the world 
There's no one but yourself to blame. 

Life is like an onion 

You peel it layer by layer . . . 

. . . And sometimes you weep.

The stars above me - 

A protection, a warmth - 

Against the hard, black sky. 

Twinkling and glimmering. 

A friend to anyone who looks upon them. 

They tell a story of the past. 

They've seen the earth evolve - 

From a place of Peace, 

To a place of destruction and war. 

The stars have been there through it all; 

A guiding light to the lost; 

A family to the homeless.

The whistle blows and we begin. 

The ball is sailing through the air. 

We rack up points as balls go in. 

But foul shots are nothing rare.

The time is ticking on the clocks. 

The crowd is sitting in suspense. 

They shoot the ball but our team blocks. 

We grab the ball, run up the floor. 

They're sitting right upon our tail, 

We pass. We shoot. We score! We score!

for "best teacher". There was also one, presumably for everyone, for "the most hectic school year! " And two which I found particularly intriguing:

Middle School Orchestra 




MIDDLE SCHOOL MUSIC PROGRAMME 

Strings: String ensembles at our school were involved in cross-campus activities, festival performances and seasonal cel- 
ebrations during the 1990-1991 year. First term classes necessarily focussed on skill development which culminated in 
an early December music night, received happily by a large audience in the "concertized" gym. Term II and III events 
included performances at the Victoria Music Festival, ISA Art Show, Spring Fair on the senior campus. Will Power 
at the Belfry, and within the classroom. String clinicians from the Victoria Conservatory of Music and Victoria Symphony 
visited and worked with each string class during the Spring Term. The 1990-1991 year in strings was memorable and 
progressive by all accounts! (Mary T. Smith.) 

Bands: The Grades 6, 7 and 8 bands, plus the Stage Band, performed to the enjoyment of over 600 people at the Xmas 
Concert held in December. The Honour Band, a select group of 50 students, took part in "Bandfest" at the University 
of Victoria and at the Greater Victoria Music Festival held in April. On both occasions the band scored an "excellent" 
rating. Another extra-curricular ensemble, the Stage Band comprised of over 30 students from Grades 6, 7 and 8, per- 
formed at morning assemblies, Berwick House and, together with the Honour Band, at the Junior School. All Middle 
School band students entertained many spectators at the Spring Fair in a continuous 30-minute programme of music 
in the Christine Duke Theatre. Middle School students performed a medley of marches by John Philip Sousa. 

Choirs: Students were given the opportunity to enrol in three different choir groups this year A cross-grade choir sang 
at the Christ Church Cathedral in the combined schools Carol Service. They were accompanied by Margaret Gwilliam 
on the piano and Sean Mark, a Grade 9 student on the flute. This choir also delighted the residents of Somerset House 
with a programme of their Christmas music, and a select group accompanied Mr Alford, Santa and Elves to entertain 
the Kindergarten class of the Junior School. The Festival Choir, an extra-curricular chamber choir of 45 students, pre- 
pared two pieces 'All through the Night" and "Kyrie" which they sang admirably in the Greater Victoria Music Festival 
held in the Spring. A third choir of 80 students sang "Take these Wings" in four parts at the Middle School Prize Day, 
accompanied by Margaret Gwilliam and Sean Mark. 

Orchestra: The Middle School 85 member orchestra, which meets every Wednesday afternoon, performed at the Xmas 
Concert in December and provided music for the Middle School Prize Day: Processional, National Anthem, School 
Hymn and Recessional. 

Excursions: A group of 30 students attended the Pacific Opera 's performance of ' 'Madama Butterfly ' ', in the McPherson 
Theatre in April. The opera was enjoyed immensely by all. Another very popular excursion was to see "Phantom of 
the Opera" at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver in June. An early morning start enabled the group to attend 
a morning "workshop" with an opportunity to meet the cast and crew. After a bag-lunch at Stanley Park, the students, 
parents and staff returned to the theatre to attend the matinee performance of the show.

The last question asked: If I could present you with a prize for something you have done this year, what what would it be for? I received 64 
different responses from the 77 students, which reflects the diversity of personal goals and talents of the students. I will mention some of them

to indicate the range and variety: for friendship and kindness; it would be for being empathetic to my friends, just for understanding them; for 
knowing how to play the trumpet O.K., and for learning all my squares in 2 weeks; for athletics; for art; for music; for drama, for Will Power; 
for best potential. Several students referred to surviving in a new school: "I feel 1 might deserve one for after changing schools and having come

Will Power 

75 students and all the Middle School Stajfwere involved in the dra- 
matical production of this year 's school play, ' ' Will Power ' ': the brain- 
child of Douglas Manson-Blair, who directed the show, and, who, 
together with William Shakespeare, wrote the script. 

Twelve different scenes from Shakespeare's plays were enacted. Each 
scene being introduced by Shakespeare himself (Simon Morley) while 
reflecting on his life in an interview with B.B. Grainger (Ben Granger) 
on a T. V. host show. From the grotesque witches in MacBeth to the 
beautiful Cleopatra, from the impish Puck to the hilarious "Wall", 
from the deformed Richard III to the romantic Juliet, to name just 
a few of the characters portrayed, everyone gave their best and had 
a lot of fun taking part. Elizabethan music was provided by the School 's 
string players under the direction of Mary Smith; the Pit Band and 
Madrigal singing was masterfully orchestrated by John Reid; a delight- 
ful rendering of "Greensleeves" was performed by Tessa Anglin on 
the harp. 

Many hours were devoted to the production of this show and we thank 
all the parents and grandparents who assisted in providing our .students 
with a memorable experience.

to an unfamiliar place and having coped so well with that. Also, for doing well at school with those things; " "/ moved from my old school to 
S.M.U. during the year, so I would like to be awarded for making it through the school year without going crazy. ' ' Some of the others included: 
for good sportsmanship; for the most gullible person; for the most time babysitting my little brother; for being the most average person; for improving 







my social standing: for not having a nervous breakdown; I think it would have to be for improvement and increased confidence because Ifeel I 
have come quite a long way since the past few years; I don't known, as long as I beat (name deleted) she is my best friend, she always comes 
first and I always seem to be a percent behind her; for citizenship and helping the students around the school; it should be for my better attitude

towards school; for enjoying school, or most improved, or soldiering on. or anything! I think that everybody should get a prize because even if 
they are not very smart, they try their best. 
76 There you have it, a synopsis of students' observations on, and reactions to, Prize Night. 



International Computer Solving Contest Winners 




Chelsea Jones, Robin Fealherslone. Dr. McMaster (coach) 



What do all these comments add up to? What does all this indicate about the meaning of Prize Night to the students themselves? I'm sure you 
have already drawn some conclusions of your own. At the least, to paraphrase Dickens, it appears that "it is the best of times, and it is the worst 
of times", depending upon whether or not one feels recognized or validated by the experience. 77 



Candids 




A message, I believe, for us, as parents and grandparents in the audience, is the need to understand what the experience of Prize Night means j 
for our individual children and grandchildren. Do we know what our children, themselves, feel they have achieved over the past year? Do we 
78 know what they feel is worthy of recognition, whether or not it is recognized formally here tonight? ' 



Leadership Group

K. O'Neill, A. Lenk, J. Forbes, S. Danzo, N. Judson, J. Frender. 



The leadership group is comprised of the Prefect body and several other 
interested grade 8 students. Meetings were conducted at Thursday lunch 
hours throughout the year with 26 students in regular attendance. 

Prior to its inception, the extent of the group's impact on Middle School 
was an unknown and, initially the seminars were established to deter- 
mine what roles our student leaders could and should play in the day- 
to-day operation of Middle School. Group discussions revealed a myriad 
of areas for involvement including the promotion of fundamental values, 
modification of school procedures, general student deportment and the 
overall enhancement of a communal environment. The students deter- 
mined ways that these goals could be accomplished and throughout the 
year, have accepted responsibilities and duties that have guaranteed the 
ultimate success of this programme. The leadership group evolved into 
a significant and positive entity very quickly participating in and initi- 
ating many activities including Santa's visit to Junior School, student 
tutorials, volunteer work at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Operation Track- 
shoes, candy striping, the Duke of Edinburgh programme and the orien- 
tation of potential grade 7 leaders. 

In the final analysis, the group's greatest contribution to Middle School 
came from the positive example they presented throughout the entire 
year. When called upon to make an extra effort in this regard, they re- 
sponded enthusiastically and immediately. Traditionally difficult times 
were made much easier by this group 's influence. 

Thanks to them, our Middle School leadership programme is far bet- 
ter defined and the foundation is in place for further development in 
the years ahead. 

Stephen Alford. 




It would appear important that we. as parents and teachers, reinforce for the students that Prize Night is but one night, one event in the year. 
Over the past several months, I myself have witnessed many accomplishments worthy of recognition. Some of these were works of art, some were 
athletic accomplishments, some were class projects, some were musical presentations, and some were dramatic performances. Alt of these were

This has been an outstanding year for our Mathematicians and all are to be congratulated for their expertise and hard work. 
In summary the grade sevens produced our best results ever. They were 1st in Canada in the CNML Contest (out of 680 schools) 
and 1st in their Region in the Gauss Competition. Steven Lobb scored 150/150 in the latter contest and made only one mistake 
in the CNML. Others who did outstanding work were Ben White, Bethany Smith, Chelsea Jones, Philip Miller and Alexandra 
Janse. In grade eight the team were 2nd in the Gauss, 5th in the CNML (out of 650 Canadian Schools): 5th in B.C. (10th in 
Canada) in the PASCAL Contest (working with the grade nines) and also 2nd in Canada (again with grade nines) in the Atlantic- 
Pacific Competition. 

David Murray excelled by scoring a perfect paper in the CNML; was first in Gr. 8/9 (SMU) in the PASCAL and second in 
the SMUS (Gr. 8/9) ATPAC team. 

Other grade eights to do an outstanding job during the year were Richard Johns, Kevin Leong, Ailsa Lenk, Ole Schmidt, Rick 
Brimacombe, Mischa Greenwood, Sarah Danzo, Ernest Salcedo and Caroline Thomson.

worthy of a prize. And, in fact, many of them were prized at the time. I think it is important for us to remember that the word ' 'prize " is a 
verb as well as a noun. The dictionary reminds us that to prize is "to value highly: to esteem, cherish or treasure. " At Will Power, to pick but 
one notable example, I witnessed, as I'm sure many of you did, a great deal of prizing taking place. I saw students prizing other students, teachers

prizing students, students prizing teachers, parents prizing students and teachers, artd so on. Handing over a book, or a trophy, or a certificate

the year, which is far more significant in terms of quality and quantity than the prizing we are able to do here tonight.

Valedictory Address 



Ladies and gentlemen, members of staff, honoured guests, parents, 
and fellow students. 

It is difficult not to begin this speech with the old cliche, ' 'it seems 
like only yesterday . . .". But as our grade 12 year draws to a close, 
we realize that the time we have spent at St. Michaels has indeed passed 
incredibly quickly. I remember fondly, a time when I was one of the 
tallest people in the grade, including the rugby players. Granted, that 
was six years ago, in the Junior School. Since then our graduating class 
has grown both literally and figuratively. Maybe this personal growth 
was the intention of those mad scientists who began to perform their 
experiments on our grad class, the "guinea pig grad". 

After settling into the Senior School in grade 8, the shocking news 
came. The following year we were to take classes at a sports club. The 
St. Michaels Middle School was born. Its facilities included a pool, ten- 
nis courts, grey corridors, grey classrooms, grey carpets . . . It was like 
some hideous science project gone awry. Was their purpose to see how 
many grade 9's they could fit into one building? Or was it to observe 
the effect the colour grey has on the personality? I seem to remember 
being forced to walk on only one side of the hallway. But that must be 
a figment of my imagination. The Middle School wasn't entirely bad. 
There was a mystery to be solved. What were those glass cubicles in every 
classroom, into which the staff members locked themselves? I still be- 
lieve it was an observatory, where the scientists could watch their guinea 
pigs at work. 

The Middle School made our graduating class appreciate the beauti- 
ful, spacious Senior School campus the next year. Grade 10 was a re- 
latively calm year for the guinea pig grad. In grade 11, there was only 
a minor catastrophe when it was decided that the Christmas exams were 
to be written in January, despite the disapproval of the majority. Another 
experiment! 

It was during our actual graduating year that the number of experiments rose dramatically. I was not surprised 
that the infamous Victoria arsonist chose this year to set New House on fire, thereby affecting our 1991 grad- 
uates. The Atco Village was resurrected for the New House refugees. The Atco trailer compound provided the 
luxury of single rooms, outfitted with lovely accessories, for its inhabitants. The guinea pig boarders survived 
this experiment admirably, and even learned to like their new home. 

One of the most grueling experiments performed on our graduating class, was implemented by Mr. Hyde-Lay, 
alias Dr. Jekyll. He had decided the school was not in good shape. The answer? 2400 metre timed runs! The 
new sports program introduced P.E. classes, something we hadn't seen since the Middle School. Was there a 
correlation here somewhere? 

St. Michaels, despite its various experiments has provided us with concerned and caring staff members. They 
have helped us to survive the guinea pig grad syndrome, and to excel in all areas of school life. This year, St. 
Michaels won the Euclid Math Contest, achieved a provincial rugby victory and performed a musical, "Grease", 
and a play, ' 'A Midsummer Night's Dream ' '. Thank you to those staff members who helped us to achieve our goals. 
Soon the students of this graduating class will be going their separate ways. I look forward to our reunions 
at a campus with new and better facilities, which, coincidentally, will be ready for use, only after our grad class 
has left. To my fellow students, I offer my best wishes as Queen Nerd. I know the future holds your success. 
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the graduating class of 1991!

Valedictory Address 




Mr. Penaluna, honoured guests, members of staff , parents, 
friends, and fellow graduates, good morning. 

I think it would be unnatural not to begin a valedictory 
speech by noting how quickly the years have gone by, using 
the expression "It seems like only yesterday . . .". Hence, 
I will begin by saying; 

It seems like only yesterday that one third of us graduated 
from the Junior School and arrived to the grandeur of the 
senior campus, with its newly finished quad. After a brief 
taste of the senior school's hallowed halls, however, we were 
banished to the rather grey and narrow halls of the Middle 
School to become the first and last grade nine class to grad- 
uate. In grade ten, we found ourselves thankfully back at 
the senior campus, and two years and one sundial later, we 
began our senior year. In his address at last year's speech 
day, Mr. Penaluna remarked that the year had been ' 'pyro- 
technic" with achievement. Little did he know that the fol- 
lowing year would begin with a pyrotechnic achievement of 
an entirely different sort: I speak of course, of the tragic burn- 
ing of New House. However, the fire proved to be only a mi- 
nor setback, and in fact has sparked the extensive development 
and expansion that is currently changing the face of the 
school. As for the boarders, though initially displeased about 
having to live in the A TCO purgatory portables, they eventually grew to accept their new aluminum homes, 
and so the year continued as normal. 

I think that the graduating class of 1991 is unquestionably one of the most talented graduating classes that 
this school has ever produced. While not being arrested in car rallies, this year's grade 12 students have excelled 
in all aspects of school life. Academically speaking, we have added to the excellent results that, last year, prompt- 
ed Heritage Magazine to boast that we were perhaps ' 'Canada 's Brightest Grade 11". We have produced another 
national team mathematics championship, plus superb results in national and international chemistry, physics, 
debating, and public speaking competitions. In the theatres, a large number of grade 12 students have contri- 
buted to the very successful productions of "Grease", and "A Midsummer Night's Dream". On the athletic 
front, it has been a year of new developments. With the establishment of a formal physical education program, 
each grade 12 student has, over the past year, attempted every sport that the P.E. department could come up 
with, with varying degrees of success. This year has brought some excellent athletic performances, most notably 
from our undefeated First XV who have brought home S.M.U.'s first provincial rugby title; from our basketball 
team, who have won an Island Championship as well as our own invitational tournament, and finally, from 
Mr. Russell's self proclaimed "Top Set' P.E. class, who have, throughout the year, pushed themselves to the 
limits of their abilities and left a lasting mark on athletics at S.M.U. 

In recognizing the achievements of such a talented class, I think it would be wrong not to acknowledge the 
people who have allowed us to reach our present pinnacle. Thus, on behalf of the grad class, I would like to 
thank firstly all of our teachers, for their enthusiasm, expertise, and unending dedication. I would also like 
to thank all our parents, for giving us the opportunity to receive all that St. Michaels has to offer. Finally, 
I would like to thank Mr. Penaluna, who, in his countless chapel stories, never gave up trying to prove to us 
that Robert Fulghum's book "All I Really Need To Know, I Learned in Kindergarten" was the key to our suc- 
cess at high school. 

As this, our third and final graduation at St. Michaels draws to a close, and we prepare to disperse to various 
parts of the continent for the next step in our educations, I would like to wish the best of luck to all of my 
fellow graduates. I sincerely hope that the friendships that have developed here over the years will not dissolve 
with distance or time. And now, ladies and gentlemen, without further rambling, I present to you the graduating 
class of 1991.

Susan Anderson 



Susan has represented the school at cross country and track and field. She has also been on the stu- 
dent council for two years. Susan is an amiable, outgoing young lady who has had a very successful 
Grade 12 year, particularly with her academic work. Next year she will go lo Lennoxville, Quebec 
to study Commerce at Bishop's University. 



Stephany Ayotte 



Steph, our little Salmon Arm rep, has left more of a mark on this school than her size would suggest. 
She was the captain of the b-ball team with Kal (whooeee!) and a staunch defender in hockey and 
soccer for 3 consecutive years. Memories include Castlegar in the snow, crutches on the court, and 
a class 'A' mooching in London on tour. Her social life, packed with memories of "the fish bowl 
place", the Stones, oh . . and D.G. J.B. and Skulbru. She can also be seen with a certain J.C. 
Will he become a part of the boarding scene? Speaking of boarding, Ayotte won't forget latenight 
Pow-wows (you are last on the list!) and 7-1 1's with S.H. Steph would eventually like to see Africa 
and will probably end up there as a Doctor in the Peace Corps making her own clothes and being 
visited by wacky pals: S.H., J.W., R.P., A. P., and N.H. also anyone else who'll brave the way! 

"Take time every day to do something silly"

Scott Baker 



Grizzwald: Mostly harmless. (Unless eaten, of course.) Scott was an avid fan of classical music. 
Pink Floyd, dead parrots, and large wooden wombats. He once gave combined sailing/ swimming 
lessons to Sussex Davis. Though we didn't see too much of him, someone heard a rumor that Scott 
was a basketball score keeper and referee, though not much of a player. Spewing vile sketches of 
ducks everywhere, this PIT title was often seen lugging televisions, printing presses, and flux ca- 
pacitors down to the Lx)tus-Lair. The aluminum shrapnel in the outside hall was a testament to his 
success at repairing. Scott had a strange talent of walking through locker doors(!). One question 
still haunts him: What to do with the 10 litres of ammonium di-sucre 2, 4, 6 triphenyl iso-tricontanyl 
sulphate and the $4, 17 in small change dissolved therein? Since these writeups have to be 150 words 
max., that is exactly how long we have made 



Joshua Ball 



Josh made an impressive start to his SMU schooling career in Grade 1 1 ; he worked hard in a number 
of positions on the field and off. The Rugby tour saw Jimmy visit many of the local sites including 
the girls. One of his favorite sayings is: "I'd do that!". Josh hated curfew and the phone call home 
to dad after D.H. had "raised his hand in vain". The second half of the year changed for Josh. 
Both he and D.H. used to reminisce about "Highway 108", and once being a prefect, head of house, 
students council, donuts in the morning with Reg, later curfew and having a roommate. Josh will 
never forget the times he's had at SMU, the friends he has made, especially ATCO - "friends for- 
ever". Josh just remember - Summer lov'in with Kim!

Nicola Beeston 



Niki B. came lo SMU in grade 8. quickly rminj; into the social scene. Her Oing with S.H. started 
a string of loving caring relations!? Niki participated in Badminton, Tennis and 1-ieldhockey and 
is a successful Duke of Edinburgh Award Winner. Niki will remember; Tour 90: The Rock Garden, 
Scottish Dancing and Elvis, and of course Mexico 91. fiesta's and a good Ian. Niki plans on be- 
coming a doctor and wants to take care of a family of Quakers located in Carlstadt. Alt. 



Chad Bevan 



Chad, a.k.a. Wick, Scout, Peewee is one of the few SMU lifers. He has always been active in the 
school, especially in plays and on the Rugby field. Chad can often be found driving his Fiat and 
eating a pepperoni Domino's pizza at the same time. On the weekend, Chad (along with MB. and 
J.M.) enjoys Gov't cruising, violent flics, drags, and all kinds of pool. After grad, Chad will attend 
either UVIC or UBC to follow up his "business" career. What kind of "business"? No one knows. 
A few words of advice: "Watch out of furniture trucks when driving a bus!" 
- T.B. lives! 





George Bevan 



"Silence". 



Christopher Blohm 



Chris (CRASS!!!) has been at SMU since grade four when he first impressed us all with his hockey 
helmet. He moved Mr. Swan as we studied nouns, with "The beauty of the unicorn . . .". well, 
enough to beat BC for first prize that year. From then on Crass moved his interests from academics 
to more invigorating subjects such as putting soap in the soup and squishing the mustard right out 
of the ham sandwiches. The middle school move shocked everyone - except Chris. It stirred his 
philosophic side and inspired him to coin the phrase. "Still waters run deep. Auf wiedersehen" 
We shall remember Chris's instant mastery of skiing, his desire to sleep with his contacts in all 
through the German trip, his wonderful silver Alfa (big dent included). Chris aspires to attend a 
German school next year, if the Frau ever gets herself in action. Maybe there he could get a haircut 
that the Beatles would NOT be proud of. Until then, this KMPE will decide to lake off from his 
pals unexpectedly to go surf the tsunami. PORK . . . P-O-R-K!!!

Mark Blondeau 



The madman. After many and varied years at G.N.S. and voyaging the seven seas Mark heaved 
his galleon to at the bourgeois shores of S.M.U. He was not involved in much that was useful at 
SMU. not counting limited participation in debating and a fruitless endeavor at rugby in Gr. 10. 
He did participate in enlightening conversations on the accessibility of Nietzsche to certain SMU 
students. Resolving other "pseudo-intellectual" philosophical matters occupied his large amount 
of spare time in Gr. 12. such as "The Grand Theory of the Deocentric/ Egocentric Universe". 
Mark now heads off to UVic to overcome certain fears and conduct mind expanding experiments 
on friendly dogs (and Fluffy the sheep). Mark, who felt 'comfy' at SMU, will be remembered as 
a man of twisted ideals but basically conventional morals. 
"Cal is my own God ..." 



Giles Bodley-Scott 



Giles is a prefect who has been a member of the SMUG newspaper staff and a strong contributor 
to the Spring Fair's "Wheel of Fortune". He has represented the school at soccer and squash and 
has put in some service in the Army Reserves with 741 Communications Squadron. Giles has an 
interest in business and commerce and will go to UVIC with the intention of joining the Management 
Co-op Program in 1992. 





Dennis Bong 



"Where was that stooped and mealy-coloured old man I used to call Poppa when the merry-go-round 
broke down?" 

Joseph Heller, Catch-22 
Sentenced to hard time at the saliva yard four years ago, Dennis Bong asserted himself as possibly 
the worst person to irritate during test situations. Constantly the object of "gong jokes" over his 
name, he soon came to be known for his acid-tongued rebuttals. Not one to gestate in the Wenman 
amongst the culturally rapid. Dennis could often be found mimicking Big Dave or creating strangely 
disturbing "eyeball" paintings in the art room. When he builds his vast corporate empire, it will 
be because of his thrift in stealing binders from doctors' offices. Clearly, in whatever he does, Den- 
nis will always know what to do with the surplus toilet paper on trains. Don't think Dave-what just 
Bok Cong it.

Michael Brown 



Mike, a local Victorian joined the class of '91 in grade 8. Throughout his five years at SMU Mike 
played on many teams including squash, golf and rugby. Aside from a few "Baddies", Mike es- 
caped with only minor injuries thanks to J.M., C.B., G.R., and J.M. Next year Mike is going to 
UVIC to study English. After four years Mike will attend the Police Academy with Jamie McRae 
to bust Chad Bevan in his "business" endeavors.

Tyler Bruce 



A four-year veteran from SMU's ranks, Tyler has managed to keep his head comfortably above 
the water. His extreme tastes in music, which range from the melancholic "Floyd" to the deranged 
"Dead Milkmen", will hopefully change (especially the latter). His late appearances on Mondays 
were often followed by an enthusiastic exclamation of "I just saw the best roadkill this weekend!" 
- It was normally followed by a vivid description. This biking and skiing phenomenon could often 
be seen in the art room painting multitudes of multi-colored polygons. His taunting sessions with 
the art room crowd will be missed almost as much as his daily pilgrimages to McD's and 7-eleven 
with S.H Keep the home fires burning and have a great life! 



Christopher Burke 



Chris has been a great hit as an entertainer on the days of the 50/50 draw where his role is that 
of a person with a short term memory. Chris is to be congratulated on his fine academic showing 
in Grade 12. His present plans are rumoured to be centred around a year of travel for 1991-1992.

Scott Cale 



"I wish the world would conform more to my standards rather than try to force me to conform to its. " 
Scott entered this school far back in the ancient mists of time in the difficult year of grade four. 
(Not quite a lifer are ya?) This B-student has slowly worked his way up through the years and now 
stands triumphantly at the top of the school. (Just think, buddy boy, you have five to eight years 
of university and 40 to 50 YEARS of WORK to look forward to. It's not to late, you could still 
fail . . . naa.) 

Scott has not attained a scholarship but that won't be stopping him from going to UVIC next year. 
He plans to enter Business or Law and make "a couple of million" in the next decade or so. Love 
ya dude and best of luck to you!

Robin Calver 



"The change which actually took place in the world was in no sense revolutionary. Half an hour 
after swallowing the drug I became aware of a slow dance of golden lights. A little later there were 
sumptuous red surfaces swelling and expanding from bright rodes of energy that vibrated with a 
continuously changing, patterned life. At another time, the closing of my eyes revealed a complex 
of gray structures, within which bluish spheres kept emerging into intense solidity and having emerged, 
would slide noiselessly upwards."

- The doors of Perception 



Sara Card 



Sara (Tard. Tardi) Card and her SigFig Ford Pig were rescued from the public school system just 
in time for grade 10. She contributed to the sports scene as a member of the first XI Hockey team 
(2 yrs). soccer (3 yrs) and as a starter on the Basketball team - NOT. Sara participated in the musical 
"Kiss Me Kate", and she embarked on two educational trips - UK 90; Mexico 91 . She will always 
remember her camping trips, especially Little Qualicum Falls. S.M. and Bill Buckaroo Jambon will 
remain prominent figures in Sara's SMU experience. Sara is one of the most kind-hearted friends 
we've ever had, especially in comparison with the rest of us. Despite her commitments she always 
found time to care. Tardi. you never let us down, and you can babysit me anytime, but no more 
S.D. jokes. Lxive ZUS. Sara is planning on going to University next year and we wish her the best 
of luck. 





Gethyn Carr-Harris 



Gethyn, (a.k.a. Puter), is a first rate SMU student. Maybe a little short, but good things come in 
small packages. An original "Clags' master in grade 10, he got fed up with SMU and left it for 
the infamous (but fun) educational institution of Claremont. Luckily he came back for a whopping 
grad '91 at SMU. or else who knows what would have happened'? Hmmm . . .? Sleeping off his 
mono (the kissing disease) and various other traumas from Hawaii, he finished the year off with 
excellent marks, allowing him to go to England (with a certain what's her name . . .). From hanging 
out of third floor windows in grade 10. to gracing the hallowed halls of a posh English University 
in '92, he's gone pretty far. Good Luck! 



Julian Castle 



'Jules' arrived in Grade 10 with two backpacks permanently attached. He was Senior Library Mon- 
itor, a computer monitor. Eugene in GREASE!, a SMUG reporter, was certified as a Life Guard 
and Swimming Teacher. He participated in many clubs: Environment, SADD, Amnesty International. 
Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the Yearbook and helped start the Film Society. He ended a 
long trombone career with great disgust and greater relief. He became known for his weird humour, 
disorganization, high velocities attained in the quad and his height. Attempting to become a "Tower 
of Power' he took part in X-Country. Track & Field, Weight-lifting etc. His first and last dance 
was rewarded with 'The Most Original Dancer' Banana plant award. His thirst for reading encom- 
pa.ssed Wyndham, Terry Prachett. Douglas Adams and his extensive comic collection. His pet peeeve 
is being asked what his pet peeve is. Our strange friend is going to Kings, Queens, UBC or UVIC 
with only one backpack.

Brian Chan 



Brian Chan, the venerahle "B". has conic a long way from those dealing days. The little yellow 
man with the little yellow car hath wrought all kung-fu fury on this school for twelve years coming 
in Gr.l with the scrolls of Confucius in hand But these went to the wayside with the discovery 
of such periodicals as "Big Bopper" and "Sassy", from which a general fondness for short white 
girls has grown. Out of school. B proved to be very hard to keep up with. Besides his ability to 
consume copious quantities of fluids and still be able to skateboard with relative "panache" in Ayelet's 
basement. B. knows where they serve a damn Hne chicken corn soup. Ne.xl year he will voyage 
with his CR.X to UBC and hopes to have a Viking burial at sea in it one day. Remember the Roxy 
with turkey necks, Mr. KMPE. Surf that tsunami and just bok chong it. Caras cohor conmigo?!! 



Justin Chant 



When Justin came to SMU in Grade 6. he was kind of tall, sort of blond, and not too coordinated. 
Little has changed, although six years of SMU has cured the latter and he now stars on the rugby 
field. \ die-hard hockey player. Justin's inaccurate though powerful (not) slap shot has caused a 
boom in jock sales at Ray's, To the surprise of most (especially .Andy, who was far more qualified) 
Justin was named a prefect. Dazed by his appointment, he failed to do anything constructive in the 
position. Though he is rumored to have a driver's license no one has yet seen him drive the fake 
wood panelling, real leather interior 1979 Chrysler station wagon to which he has access. Perhaps 
this is because of his uncanny ability to mooch rides wheneverneeded. Justin will either be obscenely 
rich or be a fighter pilot. You only live once. 





Anthony Chiu 



Tony came to SMU from Hong Kong in grade 10. His love for sports has made him an excellent 
badminton player, although his real talent is video games. Playing "Romance of the Three King- 
doms" is one of his favourite pastimes. When Tony came back from his Christmas visit to Hong 
Kong, he changed his looks. He decided to get a hair perm, which gives him his funny look in this 
photo. Tony's Chinese friends have given him the name Banana kid. This is because of a slight 
change in the sound and meaning of his Chinese name (Chiu Shin Yan). Tony, of all the things 
he could hate from school, chooses to hate the long weekends, because he cannot find a place to 
stay. At school, the only thing more important than his life is his Sony Hi-Fi. At present. Tony 
aspires to be a famous business man in Ontario, where he plans to start his post-secondary studies. 



David Chmiel 



If God had intended politicians to think, he would have given them brains. - Sir Humphrey Appleby 
The only member of the Margaret Thatcher Fan Club. Dave has gained notoriety for bad impressions 
of Winston Churchill and his desire to become Fascist dictator of a small Central American nation. 
Dave's contribution to the Debating Team has won him numerous awards (all of which he has to 
forcibly "donate" to the great Trophy Cabinet in the Sky) Dave will always be remembered for 
reciting Vanderzalm's television address to the province as his grade 1 1 recitation. He desperately 
wants to go to the radical LSE. but will probably end up at the Papa Doc Duvalier School for the 
Fascist Arts. Is David truly sane? Some feel he secretly possesses a dream to become a Royal 
Marines Comando. no one will ever know, until he occupies his dream home of Number 10 (as 
the Bobby who guards the door . . .). 
■Quite frankly. 1 think they should all be shot."

Lisa Cohen 



L.C., Queen Polar Bear Wrestler with super contacts, filled SMU air with her laughing outbursts 
(beware of falling houses!!!). She's been around for two years, riding her Whitehorse - Seattle. Whis- 
tler, and every park in Victoria. She was often found shooting to tunes in her room with S.H.. J.Mc. 
and S-. With the help of J.M.. she tried to straighten out Kev and Ali but to no avail, though Wally 
shows promise. On the subject of sleeping, though L.C. is a proud member of the "no science club", 
she always enjoys a good snooze in class, entertaining her classmates. Des. we might add. was never 
the cause of a doze. This playgirl of the Northern World will be found partying in small towns with 
S.K.. and A.E. for a few more years, but will eventually be found living in the suburbs among 
a throng of children, tending to her igloo and pet polar bear. Lesson learned: "Sinning in secret 
is no sin at all!" Enjoy life! 



Jesse Collison 



The newly acquired Doo proved no match for the Brye Cream, as this stud of young lovers made 
his way closer to turning over many new leaves. His production of the famous "Eat Sh--!"' quote 
made him famous all over the world along with his caring and sharing friend Glam. We all have 
huge hopes for Jeshee in his goal to reach the top. 





Sarah Connolly 



Sarah Connolly came to SMU in Gr. 8. Sarah, in the beginning was a calm, laid back kind of person, 
but It wasn't until the Nitnat exchange trip that her true personality emerged! Sarah "Wild Woman 
of the Woods" Connolly quickly showed her tremendous athletic ability (along with H.L.) In school 
she continued to show this superior talent which is why she is the founder and captain of the under- 
water basket-weaving (caring and sharing) team. She will especially remember those fantastic Salt- 
spring trips in -i°C weather where the power mobile and the heater didn't work. ("What do you 
mean there's no heat!") Sarah has been pursued by the U of SY (Swiss Yodelling) where she was 
offered a position leaching her weaving but has decided to turn it down and stay in Canada. Good 
luck and don't forget thai inner beauty. Your Camper Buddies! 



Jeremy Cordle 



Entered SMU part way through Gr. 8. A quiet youth. Jeremy made an explosive start with his ath- 
letic ability . Susumu summed it up with the name "Chocrale Sunder" . Terms of endearment include 
such names as "Chia Pet". "JC" and "Air Jer" (after his ability to jam was made apparent) As 
for extra curricular activities Jer remained constant in his scoring. G.C.?!! Way-oh! Thanx, Jer. 
it's been a slice.

Dave Dhillon 



Davepal (pronounced, dav PAL) has kept us In awe for five wonderful years with his talk of crevices 
and old "ho's" and his pany locating ability. For four years he trekked from Colwood (BOONIE- 
L.AND) to school; however, recently, he moved to a more respectable house in town, increasing 
his night-life activities. We will remember the ski trip when Crass dazzled us with his prominent 
ability to go straight down hills, midnight hockey and the fun we had apres-hockey at 4 a.m. outside 
"Sev". (Heyl That armless guy swiped beef jerkey!) The man who observed Arjuna do a triple 
back flip on a merry-go-round also voyaged to Sydney (how fast were you going?) to converse with 
dogs after an authentic rasta gig. Pal enjoyed playing charades when the inspiration was right, as 
well as crooning "Puuubes!" Bon Voyage, Rolling Moss from Moondrop cough-syrup; please keep 
us informed of the condition of the Great White in the future. In between fixing your odometer and 
getting half a hair cut, surf the tsunami, you crazy cagkahalva-eating KMPE! 



David Didluck 



David has attended SMU for 8 years. He is a superb debater and public speaker with an impressive 
record of winning competitions at local, regional, national and international levels including being 
ranked as the 1 1th best debater public speaker in English speaking Canada. He has earned the op- 
portunity to attend competitions in Vancouver. Kelowna, Medicine Hat and Boston, Massachusetts. 
David is also a very dedicated musician to a variety of jazz and classical musical groups, playing 
both the tenor saxaphone and the clarinet. In athletics. David has played for the rugby teams and 
has dabbled in recreation curling, badminton, squash and tennis. As a fine scholar, school prefect 
and polite individual. David has made a lasting impression on SMU. In 1991 he will enter university 
to study for a Bachelor of Arts and then continue his studies to pursue a career In law. He would 
like to wish the SMU graduates of 1991 all the best in their future endeavours. 





David Di Santo 



The Italian Stallion was a welcome addition as far as the SMU girls were concerned. His favourite 
pastimes were visiting the chapel after hours with S.K. (JUST to play the piano), poker with the 
guys, and winning at ping-pong (sorry D.T. ). Although he frequents the chapel on his own. he rarely 
"gets around" to going to the mandatory sessions (and often made a point of not getting caught, 
no matter how risky). Crocket was an avid B-ball fan. He's into 6-packs (but not the drinking kind); 
pertaining to his F.O.N, courses. Little did we all know, this Port Coquitlam guy turned out to be 
the star of the ballroom dancing class (but maybe that was thanks to his fabulous partner, L.C.). 
When we next encounter Davide, he will be flying to the stars in a rocket, and only coming down 
for that special someone, whoever the lucky girl may be. Remember. "You are my sunshine". 



Evan Du Temple 



I entered SMU in Grade 8. This started five years of trying to learn how to tie a tie. Towards the 
end of Grade 12 I felt I had found the method behind it. and felt dumb seeing how simple it was. 
Considering myself an environmentalist. I decided to get rid of my gas guzzling American car to- 
wards the end of Grade 11. somewhere off the road to Carmanah. In school I very rarely went by 
my real name, and had more than one nickname. On weekends, I can still be found cutting greens 
and other grass on Ardmore Golf Course, which our family runs. In sports I tried to make a serious 
commitment to the cycling team. Considering universities. I feel UVic is big enough for me.

Gillie Easdon 



"If Gillie were any sexier, more beautifiil or more intelligent - I even might like her myseir" S.B. 

"Longhorn. stroke it to the east, stroke it to the west, jumping spider serge. Gillie tends to attract 

interesting guys." P.L. 

"So just suppose I did blow up the school - now that you're dead - what're you gonna do with your 

life?" "Oops." "After all we've been through - plus the cheesy things he said - we can never not 

be friends. Love ya." S.W. 

"Groovy disco for ever" 

"The moon shines in every pool and in every pool there is one moon." Funky Zen saying . . . given 

my goodbye. 



Alexandra Elawny 



After an interesting month of outboarding, "Cleopatra" danced into Atco life with the gang; S.K., 
L.C., S.M., D.T., and D.D. After many late night/early morning jab sessions with S.K. (and pizza 
boxes!), "Little Egypt" soon revealed herself to be what true cat-burglars are made of - remember 
the red mustang, Suzuki jeep, and to remove the bucket from outside your window! She gives advice 
on men-catching tactics, although her intriguing personality was enough to sweep S.H. off his feet. 
This year Alexandra saw her first concert (Poison), and visited a most Interesting small Alberta town 
with S.K. Her fijture goals include acquiring her male harem, perfecting the art of telling untruths 
(right Dean?) and trying to get out of the prophylactic business. Best of luck Alexandra.

Mike is an exemplary young man who gives a good solid account of himself in everything he does. 
He has been a tremendous asset to the athletic program, particularly in cross country and track and 
field. Mike is a superb violinist and has been in a variety of string ensembles and orchestras. He 
is a school prefect too. Mike has worked hard and well at his studies and will continue his education 
at UVIC. 





Melanie Fike 



Melanie Fike: as in BIKE and DIKE came to SMU in grade 10. Rumoured to have started the New 
House fire left only to bless the campus once again as a reformed grade 12 student. Achievements 
range from most original Hallowe'en costume to most original costume in grade 12. In twenty years 
Mel will be found sifting through the bones of a dead dog. And always remember, you're not Bat- 
man, and it takes more than renting Easy Rider from your local video store to be a rebel.

Danny Fill 



Danns learned upon entrance to SMU (gr. 8 '861 that he suffered from a disorder known as mixed 
dominance He soon met dozens of other students whom Mr Shatter had diagnosed as having similar 
symptoms Soon it became apparent that SMU was the mixed dominance capital of the world From 
grade 8-10. Danny was involved in various activities which provided him with the opportunity to 
visit Mr. Penaluna. Faulkner. Shatter and Constable Smith quite frequently. Amazingly. Danny re- 
bounded in his Senior years to become involved in theatre (7 plays '89-'91). student council rep.. 
D of E award winner, founder of SMUG and promoter of dances. Dan will likely attend Western 
or UBC next year He will be remembered as: the idiot who burnt his 2 lone hair in Scatman's science 
class; the guy who fell off the cable car on the West Coast Trail; the owner of a '77 MGB that 
fell apart as he travelled down the road; and as the performer of Alice's Restaurant. 



Sarah Finall 



Sarah blessed us with her presence in grade 9. Yes, she was a little weird but that's a requirement 
for SMU. Talent - none, but she could find a new and interesting way to eat oranges. When Sarah 
is not chauffering her friends around town (H.L.; You wouldn't mind giving me a ride, would you'^) 
she can be seen winning countless blue ribbons in the prestigious international Saanichton Fair riding 
big ponies. Being a member of top set P.E. means putting in 1 10% so she can be the best that she 
can be. Sarah, the prefect, being the supreme athlete that she is. has been persued by the Royal 
Roads Military College to be the Chief Fitness Director, but as much as she'd love to accept the 
position, she'll probably just go to England on GAP. Good luck, Sarah. May the force be with you. 





Thia Franklin 



Thia came to SMU in Gr.7 and never looked back. She quickly made a name for herself, by the 
fact that she ate rice cakes every day and has done so for 4 years. She also lived in the most difficult 
house to find. Thia would hand out maps to people visiting and would still manage to get them lost. 
She played on the Grass Hockey team for 3 years and did a little basketball on the side as well. 
Thia also played in the stage band on the clarinet, sax or Hute due to her wide range of musical 
talent. Thia had to put up with years of 'Tia' as people struggled with her name. Next year Thia 
plans to go to Queens or Waterloo to take Engineering. Good luck! 



Rhiannon Gainor 



This social animal with nice nails attended all school functions with predictable regularity. She would 
have been an active member of the Student Council but she decided to give others a chance. She 
will always treasure exciting, stimulating history classes with Mima, and rides in her flashy BMW 
at lunchtime to play on the swings. She sure had a better excuse than PMS to miss PE. (Whiplash 
Syndromel This woman of the night may look like a block of ice but inside she is hot and passionate, 
and only reveals this side to GQ men over 20. As for her future, she is enrolled in the honors pro- 
gram at BYU - really, she is a brain! !

Graham Gidden 



Graham. "Glam'", "Lay", or "Spanky" hopped on to the St. Michael's bandwagon in grade 8. 
His humourous and always friendly character could usually be seen or heard wandering the halls 
with his pal Jeshee. and together were always stirring up something. He was a hard man to find 
on the weekends due to his better half, Mamie. He did manage to find the odd weekend to go snow- 
boarding, to get down and boogie, or to hike "The Trail" with his friends. This polished pupil 
will true-hearted be missed at SMU. 



Alexander Gilly 



Alex came to SMU from Australia last year. He did a wonderful job in "A Midsuinmer Night's 
Dream" as the Duke of Athens. Alex made many friends, and we are sorry that he had to leave early. 





Joe Gregory 



Joe "Seppy" Gregory charmed SMU with his presence in grade 8. He was quickly recruited to 
the Rugby program and has continued with his Rugby prowess throughout his five year stint at SMU. 
Joe enjoys watching the LA. RAIDERS and NUCKS games with S.M. and visiting the CECIL 
with Miki Licks. Joe has fond memories of the rugby tour to the U.K. and Ireland and speaking 
French with Mr. Peach. Joe's worst memories at SMU involve playing cat and mouse with C.R., 
and puttin the dancing shoes on. Next year Joe hopes to attend U of T. Western, or to travel the 
island to Malispina College. 



Bikrim Grewal 



Bikrim has spent five very memorable years at SMU and has grown to enjoy every year even more. 
He excels at sports such as Rugby, soccer and hockey. He should be remembered for his perfect 
picks in the sporting world, and his memorable sayings like "Take it easy! Take it easy!". His best 
year was grade 10. He won't forget the Mexico trip, where he practiced his Spanish profanity and 
perfected the art of fiestas. Next year he will be found studying economics at the London School 
of Economics.

Neil Guernsey 



■I'll make him an offer he can't refuse." 
Vito Corleone 
Neil (a.k.a Chucklehead, Cliff Claven, Jaw) has managed to maintain a presence of non-presence 
throughout his entire sojourn at the Saint Michaels Holiday Camp for Incorrigible Cynics (It's a 
disease Mssrs. DP, AMcC, JMcIl). Living up to his reputation as a gun-crazed, mafioso. used car 
salesman, Neil won the shootmg trophy m Grade 1 1 . so watch out DCI Whenever asked about the 

"bananamobile", Neil would invariably pull out a saw and inquire as to the whereabouts of the 
nearest horse. (Puzo understands). Neil's future aspiration is to live on a mountaintop as a hermit 
and go quietly insane. Failing this he will move to NYC and form a crime family. Faced with the 
prospect of Petite Famille four days a week. Neil has come to ask: "Why is life like hanging upside 
down with your head in a bucket of hyena offal?" To his fellow grads: "Have a good life, and 
be careful out there." (c/o DP). 



Kerstin Gustafson 



The Klingon came to our sector of the Galaxy in 1989, driving her de-cloaked pocket VW. After 
slaughtering thousands at field hockey, she finally settled down to become a valuable member of 
the SMU bowling team. She and Pervez fought valiantly to protect the rights of civil disobedients 
everywhere Always a Featherstone worshipper, her 1990-91 English mark was raised substantially 
by a bottle of Grand Marmer in a decorative carrying case. 

Famurite Quote: "True artists naturally cross-dress: What oft was thought, but not so well expressed. " 

- Pete Townshend 
She knew the average airspeed velocity of an unladen African swallow; unfortunately she didn't 
know much else - except how to choose good movies. She will be fondly remembered by all those 
who could actually spell and/or pronounce her entire name, and also by the remaining 96% of the 
population. 
"Fighting is the Only Way" 





Scott Hall 



Scott (aka Squat) Hall has been at this institute of education since grade 6. He enjoys 20th century 
military history and is a walking encyclopedia on irrelevant trivia. He can be found frequenting one 
of Victoria's many cinemas and the local McD's or 7-eleven with TB. When not talking about war 
planes or airmen, he is usally painting them. His acquisition of a diesel Rabbit has propelled him 
into the elite group of VW owners. His anti-pacifist personalir> makes up for any flaws that this 
umque character may have. He says his life at SMU has been overall a "piece of cake." 



David Hamilton 



David is both the captain of the golf team and 2nd XV rugby. In rugby, he enjoyed a few 1st XV 
appearances as well. David played for the senior basketball team in his Grade U year, but in this 
his grad year, he put more emphasis on his studies m his quest to gain admission to UVIC or Western 
Ontario so that he can obtain a degree in Commerce.

Sarah Hentschel 



Germany roared m. tsunami-like, just in time to catch D,G. on the Uplands golfcourse and knock 
some sense into J.D. at a memorable dance. Her smilely memories include: late night powwows, 
bottomless fishbowls. L.I.I.T's W/N.H., close calls with questionable entertainment material and 
singing with S.P. and A. P.. One night with M.F. is also to be remembered . . . if only she could! 
"Sensual Hentschel" also enjoys the rush from a hard spike on the court and a good save in the 
goal, however, "swimmers have the bods " Although her exploits in mud-rugby, her visits to M.D.. 
M.B., and the raunchy B-day gifts she receives suggest a one track mind, she has a soft heart ("Get 
off my teddy!") and ambitions to make it big. If Sarah is not prime-minister she can be found in 
a dingy with Mr. January and a case of Dom Perignon. 



Nadia Herb 



Nadia (Naders, Nad) Herb and her LOVE MACHINE rolled into SMU adding an international flair 
to Grade Nine. A speaker of many languages, Nadia managed to become a contributor to both the 
athletic and academic world. An avid member of the "wonderfully" successful Volleyball team for 
3 years, Nad can also be seen pumping iron at VIF (which is better than Gold's). Being from Eu- 
ropean descent she enjoys the cultural side of life and often embarks on trips, some to the big city 
(Vancouver with S.C.) and some to the rustic outback (Sockie Sams and Tighnamara), wearing vogue 
rain gear. Contrary to popular belief Nadia will not be naming her kids Klaus or Adolf but she will 
be seen with J. P. in her upstate New York country estate or in Monet's Givemey. Here's to the 
good times - Good luck. 





Sean Higgins 



Sean is a friendly sociable person from Victoria. He played for the 2nd XV and proudly notes that 
he played one game for the 1st XV. Sean assisted with stage crew for "Grease". At this time it 
would seem that the ski slopes of Whistler will lure Sean during next year so he will postpone his 
university career until 1992 when he will likely go to UVIC or UBC. 



Ryan Horn 



Ryan is a keen rugby player who is classified as a 2nd XV player with 1st XV appearances, but 
he will be remembered most for his role as cheerleader at basketball games. Ryan's dress and his 
antics showed him to be a superb entertainer with a real ability to "whip up" support and enthu- 
siasm. Next year, Ryan's humourous presence will be found in Lennoxville, Quebec on the campus 
of Bishop's University.

Peter Howard 



'Peter, Peter, from High Prairie, 
Makes our lives so glad and merry . . .' 
Pete came to us in grade 1 1 to expand on his "flat, prairie education.' He had the rare pleasure of 
spending a year living with our Senior Library Monitor. Commonly known as Sparky, Peter enjoys 
Erica, Homework, and Vanilla Ice. A proud member of the Top Set PE, he could often be seen 
dominating the Bum-Towelling court on Thursdays and Fridays, with his patented battle cry, 
'GAAAOW.' Pete knows debating, Pete knows ceilings. Pete doesn't know we're doing his grad 
writeup. In future Sparky hopes to continue to emulate his her (B.H.) and follow his genetic code 
by attending Queen's. Failing that, Peter will major in Igneous rocks and minor in vegetable Re- 
dustribution at the Howard Institute of Geology and Pea Extraction in downtown High Prairie. Pete's 
parting advice to all 1991 grads: HAN-GON! 



Max Humphreys 



Mac came to SMU in grade 8 after spending 7 long years at Glenlyon. He is more commonly re- 
ferred to by his close friends as "slug". He started off his SMU career with a bang, playing on 
the school Rugby and basketball teams. After a short rebellious stage in grade 9 at the middle school, 
where he successfully drove a number of teachers to an early retirement, he settled down to his 
academic worries. All the while Max's basketball skills increased as his minutes on the court de- 
creased. Max plans to finish the year off with an appearance on the first XV and then plans to go 
on to attend Queen's next year ... if he makes it back from Mexico to graduate. 





Jeffrey Hunt 



Jeff (a.k.a. Poota) came to SMU in grade 3 from the rural district of the Highlands. Known for 
his talents on the soccerfield as the "Loudmouth" of the 1st XI, he succeeded at playing centre 
defence. Apart from soccer, Jeff excels in basketball (Dunkmaster extrodinaire), cross country, skiing 
and field hockey. Yes, guys do play field hockey! Usually can be found hanging around Scott's 
Lotus-Lair, and his life tends to hand around Vids (K.K.) among other things. Many favourite classes 
include: Grade 4 floor hockey with Mr. Bousefield, Grade 6 English class with Mrs. Moorman, 
and Grade 12 Biology with Mr. Samuel. After finishing school this year, Jeff will try-out for the 
Junior Canadian field hockey team as well as coach U14 boys, then will travel on to UVIC. 



Ayaka Ikehata 



Ayaka is a quiet girl who made many friends while she was at SMU. We were all sorry when she 
decided to cut her grad year short and return to Japan. 




131 




Gerald Ip 



Gerald (aka NIKKO, IPSTER. X-MAN. HOLLYWOOD) came to SMU in Gr.9. Willing to sac- 
rifice his body for offensive charges, he made the Senior B-BALL as an inspirational bench-warmer. 
Also, as the goalie for the 1st XL he led the league in dramatic saves. As the "Kamikaze" member 
of the "Thetis Lake Cliff-Jumping Crew", he successfully completed the 10 fathom jump This 
Michael Chang-WANNABE. who vividly supports the Canucks and guarantees a cup in 1992 after 
the LINDROSS acquisition, also became one of the BLUE-TAGGED prefects of the ATCO- 
TRAILERS. We'll miss this proficient POOL-SHARK and long live "#99, 49ers, JORDAN, CEL- 
TICS. SI SWIMSUIT ISSUES, R&B and GRAD CLASS •91". DON'T TOUCH MY SCHOOL 
SUPPLIES!' 



Stephanie Isherwood 



Stevo has been at SMU since grade 8 and can be found on stage in the fetal position or yelling "AC- 
CEPT IT" off the top of Mt. Tolmie. Steph's worst memory at SMU was waking up after missing 
the Stones concen to find herself with smoked salmon between her teeth and R.F. wearing her skirt. 
Her copious encounters with "Bri" were reconciled over a Flamingo Zamboca at El Rancho \\ith 
him. D.T. and S.P.. Her best memories include egg omelettes. B-52 bombers, museums, and the 
blind leading the blind. Steph's sole aspiration in life is to one day wake up the morning after and 
remember what happened the night before and, of course, to remain the kite-flying champion of SMU. 





Kate Jacobs 



This infamous .'\TCO prefect from Hope was renowned for her "AFRO-American" butterscotch 
locks (apres photo). Quite the yearbook enthusiast (co-editor, you know) she adored her monthly 
readings of Koleinu and Achshav - some culture from Juliette and (he little Jew ish leader. Yet hourly. 
Catholic Kathleen insisted that the R.C.s were EVERYWHERE! Whizzing around in her white Buick, 
she ran from her marital counseling jobs to Chinese food with J, after Gisele. Heh, Heh. After room- 
ing with Christine "Neatness" Tyson in grade 1 1, it was no wonder that people frequented her win- 
dow as the door was always barred by clothes, pizza coupons, a giant rabbit. Malcolm .X literature 
. . In the world of spons, Kate's athletic prowess was demonstrated by her racewalking and swim- 
ming pursuits, but her motor skills still left something to be desired. This vivacious, worldly and 
charming (right. Mr. Jaffer?) lady will no doubt become very successful and notorious in her jour- 
nalistic pursuits. Shalom. 



Ashif Jaffer 



Ash's to ashes, dorms to njsi, 
80 boarders in cages, with an aluminum crust; 
On Board Members' Ferraris tiur Ash left his mark; 
He was somewhat off-while, never A-toool dark 
Our leader. 'The Jackhammer' coined by the Camp. 
Took charge of Alco. and tried to revamp. 
Bul J.J stood firm and was quite the Brit. 
He Ihoughi he was suave; we thought he was a iwii. 
Yogurt green and Crocodile pink donned our dapper knight. 
Then Ash Wednesday came; You never saw such a sight! 
From admiring the splendour, one could almost go blind. 
But luckily, Mr. Faulkner did not seem to mind 
As Head of House, nightly snacks were his forte. 
Went every nighl and watched the bread turn grey. 
Neither Snow, Ram, nor Rotting Rats could keep him from his rounds; 
The pleasures of prefecling knew no bounds! 
And as 
(Oh, I don't want to do this anymore, I'm bored!)

Brett Johnson 



Ranee was only at our school for a little while but no one will forget his awesome SMU Super School 
tie. Remember: "A Smith & Wesson beats four Aces." "It's All tied up. but it just as easily could 
have gone the other way"; Glazed looks in Chem; Working until 2:(K) am on the stupid paper that 
won't even be around next year: Ranee. Randy. Ranoid. Paul Bunyun.'.' His real name is Brelt; 
"Conversation starting is kinda hard to do" "If I'm going to put myself through college I'd better 
learn how to play poker now!" And finally Wenman Cineplex and pool hall. Thanx SMU. it was 
a lot of fun sitting through classes I liK)k last year. 



Atul Khullar 

"That no person be told of my death. 
Or made to grieve on account of me. 
And that I be not buried in consecrated ground. 
And thai no sexton be asked to toll the bell. 
And that nobody is wished to see my dead body. 
And that no mourners walk behind me at my funeral. 
And that no flowers be planted on my grave. 
And that no person who cared not remember me. 
To this I put my name." 

- Thomas Hardy 





Derek Kilburn 



His pet peeves: SMU. fire. Peter, and wearing a uniform. Among his favourite memories are Big 
Girls don't cry. Frase/Hamilton. 208.301. urine pucks. Duncan's hamster, and Gregory's house. 
His worst memories include gunpowder. Peter, painting. Atco, unintended long holiday. Derek's 
hobbies are Beetime. feeling 100% every Sunday/Saturday morning, and giving Zaylor a hard time. 
His ambition is to go to Colorado and become some lazy bum with no job. To D.H. and R.F. and 
everyone else to whom it applies, either you do it or you don't do it. 



Stephanie King 



The readhead with the bountiful curls made her presence first known with her escapade to the bell 
tower with A.E.. R.L.. R.C.. & S.H.. Of course, her strong connections to her home town Crows- 
nest Pass (and her "angel" there, DR.) put that modest municipality on the international map. Steph 
King (when under certain influences), is very friendly and impulsive (D.D. - hint. hint). And she 
found her way to bars and night clubs with the making of a (fake?) ID. on a mission to Seattle 
with R.C., K.W., A.W. & A.L.. When first having arrived at ATCO heaven, she and A.E. spent 
until the early hours of dawn talking and remarking on the wonders of trailer life. One would ima- 
gine that Steph-King will be raising a family of twelve, wiping babies' bottoms (those of D.R.'s) 
quite happily. Her last words: "No worries ■ no regrets!"

Raymond Lam 



Raymond is a good natured and popular boarder. He enjoys rugby and recently completed an in- 
teresting week in which he played for the 1st XV, the 2nd XV and the 3rd XV. Raymond has always 
volunteered on behalf of MS and next year he will be studying General Arts at either UVIC or UBC. 



Catherine Lambe 



During her six years at S.M.U., Spin has worked hard for her nickname. Two examples: on the 
New York trip, she took a shower while everyone else was evacuating the hotel during a fire; MIKE. 
She can get away with any excuse, and I personally am filled with admiration for her talent. Mr. 
Faulkner - "Why is your skirt so shon?" Catharine - "It shrank in the wash." Miss Keziere - "Ca- 
tharine, why have you missed the last four French classes?" Cat - "I had doctor's appointments." 
In a long and flirtatious career, (remember Len?), she reached the pinnacle this year with The Le- 
gend, something she will NEVER forget. Now the young tennis wonder is leaving for U of T sup- 
posedly to study the Arts but hopefully to find some rich guy and never have to drive a Rabbit again, 
but spend the rest of her life shopping with Caroline. We'll miss you Cath.

Aaron Lee 



It was a big move for Aaron to travel across the Pacific Ocean all the way from Taiwan to enter 
SMU in '87. He started the year with the gr. 9 camping trip. He soon found out the Outdoor Chal- 
lenge program was pretty challenging when he had to swim in a freezing cold lake and hike without 
a warm jacket. Somehow. Aaron managed to survive. Studying was Aaron's life, when he found 
out that he couldn't even communicate with others. Finally, he realized that there are some fun stuff 
other than studying. He joined the Badminton and X-country teams in gr. 10. He finally made the 
Badminton A-team in gr. 12. (He thought about retirement before that). By some luck, Aaron moved 
into the portables when he re-entered SMU. (Where were you in gr. II?) He will certainly miss 
the ping-pong battle with D.D. and D.T. GOOD LUCK in the future, and smash your way through. 
By the way, what is your Chinese name? (Is it Ming-Ling or Ming Ying?) 



Andrew Leung 



Andrew came to SMU in Gr. 9. His slightly above average intelligence was immediately noticed 
by all his teachers who gave him straight A's. Unlike his friends he had good study habits which 
will probably help him get into some mediocre school like Stanford. As a member of the 1st XI, 
Andy showed signs of Maradona-like brilliance, but mostly he looked like a cold chinaboy freezing 
in the rain. His greatest contribution was founding the MHL. The only bad thing about it was list- 
ening to him describe his Gretzky imitations or Savardian spins. He was humbled, though, when 
he saw himself on video. Prediction: Andy at age 26 becomes the first blind man to successfully 
perform open heart surgery while listening to his beloved Canucks lose big time on HNIC. Good 
luck, Andy, and by the way, "somewheres" is not a word.

Pamela Lewis 



Pam arrived at SMU in grade 8 because she wasn't a cool enough banger to attend her district school, 
Vic High. It was a year of athletic and academic success for Pam. earning her all-round student 
award in June (although I'm not sure whether she made it to the ceremony). Grade 9 brought the 
creation of Soggv - the 6'10 wide-eyed comedienne with an attitude il never said you were gangly). 
Grade 10 was'the Year Of The Ouija Board and the realization that getting ■'out" of trouble was 
just as easy as getting "in". In grade 1 1 "The Stang" could be seen bootin with SOG melodiously 
to any song. As' for grade 12. Sog picked up a new sidekick from hell D.K., and despite work parties 
for Piete on Sats. the life of crime remained glamourous. Well Sog. cheers to the "I can't remem- 
ber " nights Take care wherever you may go. we love you. 



Fiona Lim 

Fiona was supposed to go to Columbia College in Vancouver rather than SMU. On the registration 
day she had the chance to take a look at the students there. What scared her the most was that they 
were all "ORIENT.ALS". She thought she was back in H.K.. .After the registration, she went home 
and pulled a fit. demanding that she not be sent there. Finally her parents gave in and sent her to 
THIS SCHOOL. When she arrived at SMU she was impressed by its beauty and NEW House -the 
burnt and wretched dormitory. She plans to go to UBC after grad. 





Lawrence Loiseau 



After flying from his hometown in Houston. B.C.. Lawrence entered SMU boarding life in grade 
10. His first year was in International House where he met the famous Cisco Kid. Hikari. Takaki 
and Jason "lePoop" LeHeup. Being part of the infamous "clags" English class of grade 10. Larry 
will always be remembered for his ice and road hockey skills (i.e. Legion of Doom champions), 
arm-wrestling, and his wars with the man from Sve(de)n (R.R.). Lawrence's family has recently 
moved to rockin' Chemainus. making it easier for him to settle down to some serious studies at 
UVic next year, partying in a groovy apartment with R.R.. 



Adrian Luckhurst 



Adrian first came to this school in grade 2 which makes him a close to being a lifer as possible. 
(What a drag') He really likes the women here, but whether they like him . . . well, that remains 
to be seen! (Just kidding goof) Adrian will have his blackbelt in karate by the end of the summer 
and perhaps his own company. He enjoys windsurfing. MTN. biking, snowboarding and any other 
wild sports. He hopes to become an Architect/Businessman and attend UBC. or Carleton. Under- 
neath his serious smiles he is really a friendly, fun-to-be-with guy. We will all miss you PUBEY! 
Good luck!

Kevin Lundy 



"It's not enough merely to succeed - one's friends must fail!" Dick Cavett 
Perhaps the most fiendishly devious character ever to enter S.M.U. is Kevin Lundy. One might 
attribute his warped pschological profile to his condition as a lifer, or the fact thai he lives in Metch- 
osin, a sociopaths breeding ground, but Kevin claims he is a self-made man. aside from occasional 
inspirations from his idols, Ted and Al Bundy. Klundy has been "blessed" with the charming talent 
of taking something hideously horrific and making it really quite hilarious, a talent that should secure 
him a position as a newscaster at any T. V. station or as a writer of nursery rhymes. If Kevin could 
overcome his aversion to chapels (I can't go in there - I'll burst into flames) perhaps he could become 
a lecherous Catholic priest and tell some interesting chapel stories. Kevin, may your talents allow 
you to "grow large with food" in comfort, and may you never be afraid to be obscene in solemn 
moments. 
Good luck to the Hagfish. 



Heather Lyall 



Heather "Hormee" Lyall was delighted to come to SMU in grade 8 because it got her away from 
her 6 siblings. She coped in the sciences but found her true call in life was writing lovable (?) and 
sweet (?) short stories like "Ami" (with an I). This multi-talented girl was made "the bust every- 
body in sight" prefect and a member of the exclusive top-set P.E. class. However, due to her su- 
perior Soccer skills she managed to run one and leave her knee kicking the ball. As a result she 
had to pull out for a knee operation. She would have entered and won the Imitate as One-Celled 
Amoeba Contest but there wasn't one. So she had to practice on her friends, much to their delight. 
Heather will be back skiing in no time with her ski buds while the two S's sit and watch, (our talent 
lies elsewhere). Have fun on the GAP. watch out for Mr. T-bar.

Come dance in moonbeams, ride the night wind 
make love to the darkness and laugh at man's sins." 

- Cowboy Junkies 



Jennifer Maher 



Maher arrived from Calgary for grade twelve, with cowboy hat. pink birrenstocks. skis and pictures 
of her blonde, now ex-lover. Chris. Soon known for her outgoing (obnoxious) ways she fit right 
into ATCO life, ordering ZA and diet Coke at all times of the night. Though a member of the great 
whipping cream attack, she was still heartily encouraged by them all to "S-C-O-R-E Mahoney." 
with a certain Brit housemasterl One of many scary adventures she undertook with LC, AW, KW, 
and GR was at Beaconhill Park, where she was the only warm one! She and LC tried to train Buck 
and Wally to "grow up" to no avail. She moves on to university where she hopes to find the lucky 
man who will love her, cherish her. and buy her that enormous diamond solitaire ring. Her advice 
"if you're going to love, give in. If he burns you don't act mature, weep. rant, slash his tires."

Christine McKay 



Christine, or Big Red (as named h\ Alex and Ben) has been a part of this great Institution for three 
years. She is known as the only snowboard-betty at SMU Her best memories include her early 
morning rides on the Creekmobile with her under the seat buddy on the big yellow bus. She fondly 
remembers all the ski trips to Whistler (or shall we say snowboarding trips) and Mr. McCrackcn's 
physics class with her ever popular theory of how the seasons are changing. Christine is an active 
choir and drama student which led her to such accomplishments as the leading role in Kiss Me Kate 
and a vibrant chorus member in the musical Grease. She will be attending University next year and 
will be studying to be a speech therapist. Have a rad year. Shredder, and watch out for the cute 
guys on the slopes. 



Jean McPherson 



Goodbye makes the journey harder still. 
- Cat Stevens 
Bo Bean arrived at SMU in grade 1 1 bearing innocent blue eyes, a gap and the '"Fro". The gap 
is still there and so's the fro. but where did all that innocence go? She met a boy named Conrad 
(We're just friends), hooked up with some party pals - S.H.. L.C. & S.A. to name a few. and started 
on the windy road to Gyro where she had a "peachy" time. She remembers many a fishbowl with 
the "conversation crew" and will never forget champagne in the Poet's Arbour. "Greased Light- 
ning in the backroom (C.W). driving into the ocean and C.ALA.AMSII Scout will be remembered 
for the Red Rocket, her B-da> kidnapping and the whipped cream raid. Jeanie . . . dancing on the 
wharf, hot chocolate and late night phone calls have left their mark . . . Wherever you go. w hatevcr 
you do. WE LOVE YOU!! 





Scott McQueen 



Schloob first graced us with his presence in grade 8. At first he was considered a little bit of a "wild 
man" with his long, bushy hair, a 'b' in his mouth and heavy metal clothing, but within a few years 
he transformed himself into a model student. Scooter has contributed immensely to the rugby pro- 
gram at SMU and hopes to further his career as a player at University. Chevy will try to forget 
the many losses in John Madden's football to J.G. Scotts best memory at SMU. besides the ones 
with S.C. was the U.K. Rugby Tour, but I'm not sure he remembers alot of nights. Schloob is 
planning to go to either U of T, Western or the old "VIC'er". as he has said many a time, "There's 
always Camosun". Wherever Scott ends up, you'll be sure he's working towards his goal, owning 
a respectable establishment called, "The Cecil". 



James McRae 



When one thinks of Sidney, one automatically thinks of James Gordon McRae. Ever since his arrival 
in grade eight, it's been one adventure after another. Yet perhaps the greatest school related activity 
was the Squamish rock climbing trip. . . . "well if you'd put some wood underneath your tarpaulin 
..."... "I don't think so. Homey don't play that". Stuff outside of school with MB. and C.B., 
included Cougar Games, Seagal and Estevez tlics. Govt cruises, and Midnight hockey. Throughout 
his S.M.U. years, Jamie was a faithful member of both the squash and golf teams. After Grad. Jamie 
plans to go to either UVic or Guelph for four years. Then, . . . watch out scum, slime, and bad 
guys, cause there'll be a new cop on the beat! 

- T.B. Lives!

Robert McTavish 



Rob has been at S.M.U. for six years and endured many nicknames, but the one that remained con- 
slant through the years was Big Bob. There was another that he never would figure out. it was Mr. 
Hyde-Lay calling him McP. Rob was active in many sports at S.M.U.. he was on the Tennis team 
for three years, both junior and senior basketball teams and made a sizeable conribution to senior 
Rugby. He never quite knew what to do during his Tuesday morning spares, so most of the time 
he would end up going for breakfast with R.R. In his grad year the tradition of lunchtime B-Ball 
ended and the new tradition of pool started, unfortunately he found that a size advantage over his 
opponent did not help (should have stuck with B-ball). Goodluck in the future, Big Bob. 



Sonja Michaud 



Sonja, a boarding prefect, has been an active member of the soccer, hockey, and basketball teams 
since grade 10, and has travelled to both England and New York with the school. Now ... for 
the real story . . . Horse arrived at SMU in grade 10 with a half sac of bud and her skiis from 
the dangerous town of Banff. She quickly settled into the social scene . . . well, maybe Gino eased 
the pain. After a naive chat with her little friend on a banana comforter in grade 10, Son hitched 
with the wine-me-dine-me King J.G.. The king left, and after some play. Horse met B.. From then 
on, things blur together. But Son's friends are never afraid to be frank; we had no idea. Until grade 
12, or lets say until that night under Sean's porch, we all saw the light. Since then, the game's never 
been more fun. The rest is history. Son plans to attend U of T next year. Good luck Son, Here's 
to the soul talks, the "oh my bod" calls, and as for the game, we won. Love you, Zus. 





Greg Miller 



Greg can be classified as a "near lifer" after an eleven year tenure at SMU. He has played 1st 
XV soccer and is a member of the cycling team, but Greg's major sport is sailing. He is a top notch 
sailor and a member of the 1 99 1 Canadian national Sailing Team - a great achievement. Next year, 
he will study Arts and Science at UVIC. 



Yan Monroy 



Yan Monroy (aka Chivato, Chavez y Chavez) crossed the border and came to SMU in gr. 9. He 
has excelled in soccer and was recruited by Mr. Cordle for the 1st XL He also did Track in gr. 
10 to improve his French mark. This premier jumper of the "Thetis Lake cliff-jumping crew" jumped 
from 90 feet for a pair of casavas melons but was cruelly disappointed when he found that they 
were bruised. In Biology 1 1 , he was one of the proud five members of the demonic back-row that 
was sentenced to GENETIC HELL by P.G. We will miss this crazy Mexican, Downtown Yan Mon- 
roy. Steelers in '94!

Michael Montour 

Mike came to SMU from the wilds of Banff. Manitoba in 1985. He doesn't order albatross on his 
pizza - if there's anyb<xiy watching. "Psycho Mike" knows the precise wavelength of all five (Three, 
Sir. Three. ) primary colours. His new learning amazes everyone: Mike will soon discover how sheep 
bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes. Apart from that, this co-Pittite delights in storing 
lots of energy in a select few electrons, then letting it dissipate rapidly through G.I. or some un- 
suspecting Physics teacher (NOT G.L.. M.J. or B.B.) His musical tasts include AC/DC. ZZ Top. 
and the screeches that comes out of most of the CD players he has tried to fix. He joined the ranks 
of the many proud computer dropouts, in order to increase his number of spares and chances of 
regaining his sanity. Next year: UBC Engineering, and non-non-alcoholic beverages. 



James Morley 



James, not a lifer as such, came to SMU in grade 3. His early philosophical inspiration came mamly 
from the Monkees. but after they went out of syndication James turned to the very similar political- 
philosophic concepts of Marx and Engels. James correspondingly has a very red. red wardrobe. 
James has had endless Math achievements, and has debated with vigour for the school, although 
his altruistic reason (truth be known) was: "roller-skating with bright lights, loud music, but don't 
tell my parents". James enjoys reading Ben Johnson, but he can't understand why everybody fusses 
over Donne and .Auden. James is not a pooftah. and he supports aboriginal rights. 





Jennifer Mortimer 

There was a young lady from SMU 
Who just couldn't think what to do. 

So she teamed up with Kate 

And I'm pleased to relate. 
They had a lot of fun co-editing this yearbook after schoo" 
(and she did some other stuff too.) 



Kevin Murphy 



The Middle School was the best of times and the worst of times for Kevin, although he disliked 
the Middle School's uninspired exterior with "J. J.' Goodwin and music appreciation classes with 
Mrs. McNish. After his year of privolity at the Middle School. Kevin peddled down to three years 
of precious work at the Senior School. Kevin plans to study Commerce next year at University.

Pamela Murray 



Pani will be remembered for cries of "I want lo go home!" throughout the Grade 8 outtrip. oc- 
casional fits of extreme hyperactivity (yes, she really did jump into the pool fully clothed in Grade 
9) and incredible commitment lo school activities (she has attended two environmental meetings, 
and was m Choir for two years) During her SMU career, she has managed to blend into the back- 
ground (except durmg the aforementioned sugar fits), make a few good friends, avoided doing Phys- 
ics sheets, and most remarkably - understood Calculus. She hopes to go on to become a veterinarian, 
and dreams of the day when she can tell Ms. Gwilliam lo "Open the window!" 

"You cannot teach a man anything. You can only help him 

to think for himself" - Unknown 



Francis Muzio 



Muzz (the nickname needs no explanation) originally hails from the climatic hell otherwise known 
as Winnipeg, (as he will not let anyone who knows forget.) He migrated to this serene urban jungle 
called SMU in Gr.5 and later was left a rather large legacy by his brother, the original Muzz, (which 
thankfully he did not follow). This Muzz though, will forever be immortalized for his omni-presenl 
goofy grin, legendary quad basketball skills, reckless misuse of prefectship (one person busted to 
date) and the inane, annoying, constant sense of calm and predictability that always seemed to sur- 
round him. Muzz will probably drag himself lo Waterloo or Simon Fraser next year to lake chemical 
engineering and learn how to blow up things or something boring and calm like thai. 





Amir Neyestani 



Amir came lo the school in grade 8 from Glenlyon by the Sea. He entered SMU after an excellent 
scholastic career at Glenlyon, winning numerous awards and books. SMU has yet to give Amir these 
prizes except for his diploma from grade 9, (where was he anyway?). Amir has also tried to excel 
at sports playing on the B team in grade 9 and 10, rec tennis & Rec Racketball. Amir enjoys driving 
his many cars and hitting the slopes hard!!! (remember the Grad Ski trip?) Amir plans to go to the 
East in search of knowledge and other things ('.'), his most likely choice is McGill. 



Jobi Norman 



Jo (a.k,a. M.T. by a precious few. ahem) will certainly be missed at SMU - who else will pow- 
erscore keep at b.b. games? Who else will ask: "Are you happy?" at the most inopportune mo- 
ments? We'll never know. Mutt's glad Jobi said neg lo Saskatchewan - too much wheat and grasshoppers 
- no hotel possibilities. Just 'member "It's ALL your fault" p.s. hit - whoops - I mean kiss Brit 
for me (couldn't resist). 




142 




Grady O'Neill 



Grady "The Greaser O'Neill (aka The Leprechaun) came to the school in grade 8 as D.R.'s twin 
brother. He amazed us with his supreme skills in the fields of football and basketball (HEH! HEH!). 
One of the four members of the -Thetis Lake Cliff-Jumping Crew" plans to attempt his first 90ft. 
jump if the Casa\a melons are ripe The master of the "ruf" and ■■yaw", he invented the infamous 
■Grady Shot' Havmg escaped GENETIC HELL, Grady plans to attend UVlCs Biology Co-op 
program. We'll miss VAN DAMME mvitations and his great facial expressions, FISH ON! 



Claire Ostick 

This goddess of theatre arrived at Atco a mystery, but was soon admired by all lor her readiness 
to get mvolved. Stage manager for both Grease and Midsummer Night's Dream, she still found 
the time to spend many hours wandering the streets of Victoria. She would have been a basketball 
star had it not been for her injured knee, so settled for the position of dedicated manager. Claire 
was kept occupied for a while by J.H. with whom she spent a memorable Christmas. She once inter- 
rupted one of her late night talks and pizza feasts with D.S. to join her fellow dormmates and raid 
the guys' dorm. Halfway through the year she found herself happily dropping out of F.O.N. Cal- 
culus class. A few years down the road we're sure to find Claire partying with the UVic drama 
department, but she promises to return to haunt the halls of SMU in the future. Best of luck Kitso! 





Jason Penaluna 



Jason. JP, or Feathers is one of a few graduating lifers this year. After starring in Robin Hood in 
Gr. 7 he went on to star in Kiss Me Kate and Grease. Feathers played B-Ball and soccer for SMU 
and excelled on the rugby field. Jay (L.C.) captained the B.C. U-17 rep team to a provincial crown 
in the summer of 1990 and was also named to the Canadian team. The highlights of Jason's time 
at SMU was the tour to the UK and Ireland in 1990. Where he could be seen frequently drinking 
a glass of the Jet Black Stuff. Future plans for Jason include playing rugby for Canada and marrying 
a certain European, possibly German. 
Good luck pal. JaySee 



Shauna Pengelly 



Shauna came to SMU in grade 8. She endured a lengthy encounter with a certain fisherman, cap- 
tained the first XI hockey team, and played soccer on the first XI for three years. She took part 
in the production of "Kiss Me Kate", along with receiving copious academic awards. The France. 
U.K.. and Mexico trips were cultural and enlightening experiences. Five years later and we're still 
alive, but the pitch won't be the same. Who's left to Card':" She will be remembered by the THULE. 
THANKS for the back rubs, your friendship and your little presents. J.B. Good times, good people, 
good friends. C.W.-t-S.I. good luck, keep in touch. 
GO BIG OR STAY HOME.

Rachel Phillips 



Rachel is a popular yet strong individual who has successfully and carefully walked the fine line 
of challenging yet respecting authority. In her own special way, Rachel has been involved in track 
and field. "Grease" (costumes). "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (stage directing) Amnesty Inter- 
national and the Environment Group. In keeping with her outlook, Rachel will go to one of the fol- 
lowing diversely simated Universities: UBC, Brigham Young University in Utah, Bishop's University 
in Lennoxville, Quebec. 



Susan Platts 



"It's hung, fung hing hung." 

This Vogue "Love Goddess" came to the school in grade 8. Her first, middle, and last words were: 
"Should I wear it up or down?" This number one candidate for skin cancer often heard the words: 
"Mith Plath, your thkirth ith a little on the long thide" and "Isn't Cath doing two weeks Brown 
Hall duty for wearing earrings like that?". She'll never forget Wong's restaurant where she yelled: 

"He whipped out his !" (Everyone turns and looks). Her future ambition is to be an opera 

singer, but she will most likely end up sharing an apartment with Ayelet in Italy, going to see quality 
male performances. 





Jennifer Popkin 



Jen "popped" into SMU in grade 7 and was immediately accosted by swarms of the "uncivilized" 
prep-school boys. Since then, Ditz has become involved in the more "rigorous" aspects of SMU 
life, as soon became apparent when she courageously braved the dangers of sea, land and sky both 
in Squamish (Tension!) and grad ski trip (I don't think we're on the green anymore, Trish"). How- 
ever, Germany with P.Y. Spring 90' created the most memories best appreciated after a couple 
"Brown" Russians and a good game of fuzzy duck. Come grade 12, the next Jen Satriani could 
be seen zipping around in the blue terror or the silver bullet with G.R.. Ragu, "precision", A.W. 
& the Ditz, Blimp G.R.'s obsessions. Veto and T.B. won't soon be forgotten Jen, and we expect 
to see you cruising the Evrorail (luggage racks) in Europe in the near fumre! Good Luck! We love you! 



Ayelet Porzecanski 



"It's hong, fung hing hung" 

Better known as "Eyeball", Ayelet came to SMU in grade 9. You have probably seen her driving 
a two ton killing machine/babe magnet. Speaking of babes . . . remember the hot tub? One of her 
worst grade 12 memories - realizing that J.S. actually has a bigger mouth than she does. Next year. 
she will be attending U of T to study voice. Her future ambitions - to sing in McDonald's ads but 
will probably end up sharing an apartment with Sue Platts. probably not singing but doing ... in Italy. 




144 




David Radick 



David Dean Radick (aka Data Dave, Razor Radick) has cheezed his way through five years of SMU 
education. A crowd favourite. "Crazy Legs" dazzled Blue Devil fans with 4th quarter heroics (as 
cheerleader, of course') His patented "Hugo Cheez" pimp wardrobe distinguished him from the 
crowd A true threat behind the wheel of the BROWN-BOMBER (avec cheezy sex lights covered 
b\ broken soap dish which constantly fell from the roof). Pimp-Man hopes to exceed the value of 
his car in ICBC claims. We'll miss this demonic back-row BIO member, who will definitely go 
to GENETIC HELL! LONG LIVE SABRES #77! CHEEZ-PLEEZ! 



Jason Reynolds 



Jock of all sports/fi"eak of nature mathematician. Jason Reynolds is best known for his Blue Thunder 
attack vehicle (mission: To destroy blunt objects mcluding hapless Volvo and misplaced lamp posts). 
He has starred on the field and in the gym. His most memorable moment was the shot that won 
the game, that won the Blue Devil tournament. His study habits or his lack there thereof may leave 
him studymg at UVic m an attempt to become a sports medicine doctor. If he fails he may find 
himself following in IHL's footsteps. When questioned as to what he intends to be when he "grows 
up" the response is invariably. "A Millionaire". Beyond that little of his future is clear. 
- We wish you luck! .A L. + J.C. 





Michelle Roberts 



It's a bird . .. It's a plane . . . No! It's Michelle, faster than a speeding silver bullet in her BMW. 
and the rescuer of all in distress (with preference for certain males (3). begmnmg with the letter 
■J'). This friend of Winnie the Pooh slipped into S.M.U. life in Gr. 1 1 complete with a Mickey Mouse 
watch. "Charlie's curse and typical Melshie expressions (Leave me alone! and Don't touch my car!) 
Being a very worldly person. Shell adds to her list at S.M.U. : Florida. New York and of course 
the booming Metropolis of Squamish. Mee-shell danced and sang her way through K.M.K.. as well 
as into the heart of a certain basketball star. Next year Michelle plans to develop her many talents 
to their full potential at the fine and prostigious institute of ITT. tech.. before going on to mis- 
sionary work in some remote area in the South-.African rainforest. We wish you luck Belfie #3! 
Have fun with the elephants! 



Gillian Robertson 



This blonde bombshell sashayed into SMU in grade 9 after allowing herself to be admitted to this 
institution (uniforms? - Ahhh!) as one of the infamous Robertson twins. Gillibean and her other- 
hair (he's not my babe - we just live together) soon became accustomed to the halls of the Middle 
school as she danced her way into the heart of C.B. However, another blonde held her attention 
throughout grade lO&l I until Kiss Me Kate and the famous cast party. On the wilder side of things, 
Gilligan showed off her true self both as a fiesta dancer in Mexico '89, while slipping on her Shirley 
Temples and as a ski-bunny (fuzzyduck) on the grad skitrip. Remember Pill; T.C., Veto. Rock. 
Naes. the Wall-Coloured suit, 'first comes love . .". Rockaberry beaches. & that sleak machine 
they call the Silver Bullet' (Graham, it's my turn to drive!) Good luck and we love ya Pill! 




145 




Graham Robertson 



Graham came to S.M.U. in grade 9 from some place back east. He was quiet and subtle until grade 
11. BOOM! Boots was born overnight with A.W. and T.S. Grade 12 started with a good pace which 
built up to Halloween and the Easter Bunny. Sorry about that Mr. F. At this pomt Garfs halo was 
officially destroyed and the adventures of Spev, Garf and Buck began with Will's party and Scorea. 
The next stop for Garf was Whistler where he elegantly managed to fall through the pool at Seppos. 
Garf hopes one day to join the 100 club with Buck and Spev but is still content with the 38 club. 
Garf will be remembered as a true adventurer and he hopes to learn something in university that 
will be an attribute to the bar that Spev, Garf and Buck plan to open. Have a good one Garf and 
remember to keep pouring them back! 



Ryan Robinson 



"Svend"' Robinson entered SMU directly from the farm in Springbank. Alberta at the beginning 
of Grade nine. He met many interesting people. Mexicans, Texans and worst of all, Victorians. 
Sadly, living for so long with A.W. seemed to implant some unpleasant traits into Ryan (gnarly 
taste in music and obnoxiousness!) 

Ryan seemed to survive the infamous water battles of 9 and 10, Christmas hill (saved by a bird). 
Big hairy park benches (Lets get outta here eh Bootsie?) and even the great inferno of 1990. 
In grade twelve one might find Ryan listening to Led Zeppelin in the Bird's Room or the flames 
on TV. Ryan hopes to go to university someplace next year. Well Svend. enjoy yourself in the world 
out there and beware of Rabid Walruses. 





Juliette Sacks 



Stunning and vivacious, Juliette Yael Sacks first entered New House in Sept. 1989. Within a year, 
she had overtaken boarding and became a prefect. Head of Girls, and overall Head of Boarding. 
In the school-at-large, she played on both the soccer and field hockey teams. Juliette was a model 
student and earned excellent grades. All of these accomplishments, however, were part of her cover. 
Actually an escaped criminal, the literate Romeo reverted to type (prison style) and shomed her 
brunene locks. Due to her calm (Ha! Ha!) manner during the week, few people recognized the freak 
on the weekend as our dear JYS. Loud, obnoxious, and always hilarious (she's a big joke). Sacks 
never spent a sane moment at SMU. Contrary to popular belief, she never changed her name to 
Kate, we were just fabulous friends. Juliette will attend Haileybury in England, next year, as the 
English Speaking Union Scholar, and will attend university upon her return. 



Erica Sangster 



17% of the grade 7 female population. Erica likes large cars, fat cats, and tall Albertans. She has 
an extraordinary talent for painting trees, flowers, driftwood, and other natural objects. Of course, 
it was sometimes difficult to tell which was the flower, etc. After a near-fatal A. P. Computers class. 
she was forced to drop Chemistry and devote all her time to writing algorithms. Remember. Erica: 
call 1 (800) 334-8832 if you ever find 14 tons of rotting, sea-going mammal washed up on a beach. 
We will always remember her as a great bowler, who never deviated from regulation alley footwear. 
Her affinity for Zebras was stunning. She never attended many of the all-girl slumber panics we 
held, but was fond of movie classics like "Raising Arizona", and 'Gothic'. Finally, we can't ever 
forget that she played the Bird in the musical! 




146 




Jemima Schmidtt 



Schmitty has been quoted "Miss Best Tan" and "Miss Best Singing Voice" for this year. Mima's 
best friends are Susan Laura Bens and Theodore Tractor Butt and she will miss them as she goes 
to attend the School of Life (medicine included) where she will major in Superiority (prof. R.G.). 
Once she has received her degree she will forsake all the foolishness of her youth. No more midnite 
swims, or riding on top of the wagon with A. P. or vicious P.E. basketball games (let's kill Andrew). 
Quote: It's hung. Fung Hing Hung. She vividly remembers the scandalous gossip regarding her fu- 
ture rugby career and IHL's reaction. Favorite moment in class - deciphering Mr. Samuel's notes 
with Pagan or 'MEES EES AH VEDDY NICE OWTFEET. DOES MEESTER FOLKNER LIKE 
EET" -with S.P. Donation of 20 pounds of swiss cheese to J. Ball. Final word - Nothing stands 
in your way unless you let it. 



Mark Schneider 



Mark is a very private young man from Alberta who believes SMU life is like nothing else on the 
face of the earth. He has not become much involved in the communal elements at SMU. yet beneath 
this bland exterior is an intelligent humourous young man with the potential to be an extremely fine 
scholar. Mark will likely realize this potential at his next destination which will be in Ontario at 
either Queen's, Toronto or Western. 





Joanna Schofield 



Jo Scho two for one Bo came to SMU in grade 10 from the cheezy metropolis of Armstrong B.C.. 
Known for her poise and feminine grace she can be found fishing in the dark at Sookie Sam's with 
Mumbles. At any given time Joanna will have sixty cents and a Muffin Break receipt in her pocket, 
but as Arbutus Cove patrons realized: if you mess with the best you die like the rest. Her worst 
fear is being burnt alive by M.F. and she has one last request- "Everybody out of my house NOW!!!" 



Kristen Semmens 



"The temptation to take the precious things we have apart to see how they work, must be resested, 
for they never fit together again" 

- Billy Bragg 
Kristin arrived at SMU in grade 7, when there were only 6 girls in the grade. She immediately de- 
veloped her love for men of the Mexican persuasion. After a year at the Senior School, Kristin ent- 
ered an insane asylum, otherwise kown as the Middle School. There, her attention turned towards 
a different race. Her list of boyfriends would take up too much space, but the strangest relationship 
of all involved R.H. Finally she found the truest of loves in the arms of 'Wet Willy'. Kristin will 
always remember Wednesday afternoons, Milli Vanilli medleys by PY and ES, the search for Bob 
with P.M. in East Sooke Park, and 'omigod, it's the RUN'. Kristin hopes for a career in heavy 
metal lounge singing with PY. 
We wish you all the best of luck. School Captain Scholar, and Queen Nerd!

Daniel Shum 



Shum master, a whizkid from Venezuela, took to St. Michaels and worked till he fell sick, and grad- 
uated. In the four years, he attended SMU he earned his fame, by tutoring Max and Amir in Chem 
class in the complexities of Spanish. His favorite pastimes are too numerous too list here; but 
breathing, eating, sleeping, and studying were his most notable ones. He hopes to go on to study 
the Sciences at either UBC or UVIC. Good luck Shummers, and remember the cushion on the seat 
before you start driving. 



Pervez Siddiqui 



Pervez came unto us. with his imported humour, from the Mediterranean sands of a city that few 
would dare to mention at the airport. Quick to capitalize on the naive white man's willingness to 
part with his money and equipped with his entrepreneurial panache, he made a fortune selling 50$ 
assemble-if-you-can jeeps sans fuel tank, "fruit juices" (ski-trip). Smitty's tickets, and the Tripoli 
Hair Formula. Though he detests Chinese food, he organized the New Year's Dinner with B. and 
took his much needed skim. The young Sheik promises to retain his stubble and camouflage white 
suit for the night he appears on 20/20. In closing, he would like to wish an Arab farewell to all 
his loving teachers - "Zab-ur-Rumuk"; and to all his many good friends "Masalama". Good luck 
in conquering the TSE. Take care, big guy. 





Richard Stone 



Rich first graced SMU with his presence in 1985. Inspired by the subtle Victorian atmosphere, he 
soon established an admirable relationship with many of his teachers. Among them, the newly ar- 
rived, totally disoriented Mr. Buckingham, who remained his favorite victim right till the end. 
Talented on every front. Rich won recognition in rugby, school and his part in Kiss Me Kate, A 
true ladies' man. Rich made sure his flanks were hoarded by female admirers. The Calgarian native 
hopes to descend upon his next victims at Trinity, where he hopes to create much havoc and establish 
a campus brewery. Certainly our gain will be their loss. We wish him well in his endeavours in 
the business world. Good luck big guy, and see you at the TSE in twenty years! Perv. 



Donald Sutton 



A true veteran of SMU, arrived in grade 2. Point at a kid and Don will know his name, age & 
S.S.#. Known for his easygoing nature, Don can be found in a baseball hat with a big grin driving 
(or getting driven, more likely) from party to party, transgressing, yelling 'ST.', or playing vulgar 
"2 Live Crew" songs to prospective females. A founding mission member has also been awarded 
the title of "Bob" after many a successful mission (w/Pete & Guido). In Rugby he was known as 
Humpty playing for the 2nd XV in grade 1 1 and in 12 the 1st XV. Other such sporting talents of 
Don were "L. of D .", Hockey and Softball. When asked for a comment. Don simply replies "Thanx" 
& Thanks to Don for always being seen with a smiling face you can count on. D.T.

Simon Tang 



Simon Tang ... a diminutive and amiable scientist - in-the-making dawned upon us in the fall of 
1989. His sacred intellect promised to take us to new heights, humiliating long-time smart asses 
who thought they were there to stay. Sweeping clean the trophies with Mike and Mark has become 
a favounte pastime. A budding chorister, he dismissed his Oriental talent and turned to AP Chem 
for solitude Simon Tang became a name synonymous with academic success. Within two years 
the Tang Man hopes to enter a field in the immensity of the sciences and do gixxl for mankind. 
Simon Tang, you're a good man. 1 know you're a closet drinker but that's O.K. Cheers! 



Dean Tarangle 



Dean is from Williams Lake. BC. It was not an easy adjustment for him to make for his Grade 
12 year only and Dean rues the fact that he did not come here earlier, for he could have been a 
very useful soccer and rugby player with more experience. Dean can be well pleased with his one 
year at SMU and he will now take university transfer courses at Camosun College rather than accept 
offers from Carleton and Toronto, for he wishes to complete his degree at Uvic or UBC. 





David Taylor 



"Your sentence, my friend/ You have exposed your deepest fears./ I sentence you to be exposed/ 
Before your peers." 

Dave, or Zave as he was more commonly known, arrived on Campus in grade 9B. He moved into 
Int. House and spent the year studying hard up Tolmie. His exploits with Tim B. also brought much 
praise. Gr. 10 brought Rockclimbing(!!) and bottom floor Int. House with AW. and R.L. and many 
fist filled nights with D.K. and R.F.. In New House he went to room with Jinx and a smally fiirry 
kitten. In grade 12 Dave founded "The burnt Taylor Memorial" which resulted in a short stay at 
Burke's and then. "ATCO BOUND" Dave found true love with M.S. and spent many a night Beein'.. 
His failed attempts to quit were valiant though unsuccessful as of yet. Thanks Dave for breaking 
my doors, and for takin' all of the flack that we gave ya. You've left your mark. 



Jennifer Thoss 



Lil" Jimmy, a boarder from Tsawwasen graced the school campus with her presence in grade 10. 
She survived the trials and tribulations of boarding life and was rewarded in grade 12 with a pre- 
fectship. Duffy can be found starting a protest in a mail van. wearing a wreath around her neck. 
Later in life she might be found at Tijuana Tech studying Saloon Management while wnting her 
number one bestseller "A Cliche For Every Occasion". Some of her best memories include mis- 
sioning on Tolmie, museums. Salt Spring Island and times spent with friends; M.F..S.I..J.S..S.B., 
A.G.. S.A., S.P., & S.H.

Chris Tomlinson 



Chris came to S.M.U. (believe it or not) way back in Gr.3. Chris settled right in with nicknames 
including 'Tom-Bom' made up by none other than M.V. During Chris" Jr. school years, he was 
lucky enough to stay out of most Friday afternoon 'Penaluna's Picnics' and Mr. Takoski's infamous 
'Taco-Time' detentions. Some fond memories of those early years at S.M.U. include Mr. Banks' 
Gr. 7 computer class ("Can you read?") and the death of Mrs. Moorman's 'metaphorical plant' 
(possibly due to G.M.'s secret plant killer'.'??) in Gr. 6. On into the Sr. school. Chris was always 
known as the quiet and generally shy type. While his rugby skills on the 3rd XV in Gr. 8&9 were 
only mediocre. Chris excelled in Music He was a member of the pit orchestra in both "The Mi- 
kado" and "Kiss Me Kate" and would be sure to enjoy himself at the cast party. Next year. Chris 
plans to trek up to UVIC where he will study Business so that he may sooner or later make 'a killing" 
on Wall Street. 



Danielle Topliss 



Danielle arrived at SMU five years ago. A member of the guinea pig class, she survived all our 
trials. Smiling through the senior school ... the middle school . . . and back at the senior school, 
she dazed through time, not really realizing just exactly was going on. In spring of gr. 10. finding 
herself surrounded by three seniors: L.K., P.W. & S.J., in the middle of an amusement park in 
Florida, she finally clued into the real meaning of life. Later that year she could often be seen zoom- 
ing off into the sunset on the back of a little while scooter with J. P.. First term of grade 12, she 
thought she could accomplish something by studying, but soon realized her mistake, and began to 
live it up. As J.S. will agree, the grad ski trip was a blast in all respects. Best of Luck and Don't 
Forget . . . 





Christine Tyson 



"Am 1 a fanatic?" - Marianne Moore 

Christine came to SMU in the fall of 1988. leaving behind Gibsons, the "Beachcombers" and Bruno 
Gerussi. Her heartbreak at leaving it all behind was tempered by intense and consuming passions 
for both volleyball and studying. Although she lived with Kanami the Tsunami in grade 10, Christine 
"D'ya know what I mean?" Tyson teamed up with Kate in 1989-90. Lucky ducks! Infamous for 
cuddling her biology books, Chris began rebelling and became renowned for screaming during prep 
and similarly walking on the wild side. For various reasons. Christine "I talk in my sleep" Tyson 
never slept through a whole night. An excellent student, volleyball star and racewalker extraordin- 
aire, this "Dare Devil"" was a zany person and lots of fun. In fact, she actually liked to smile, and 
did so often (when no one was looking.) Brilliant and talented, our darling will travel to Waterloo, 
where she will realize her destiny and become a chemical engineer. Yippeee . . .! 



Mark Van Raamsdonk 



Mark has been bringing glory to the school for many years. As his name was frequently too long 
for the results sheets of math contests, he truncated it to "Muck"". Coincidentally with popular dis- 
belief, he never played the Bird in the musical. He did enjoy reciting Mein Kampf. and playing 
Judas Priest (but quietly, so his parents would not find out). The arrival of his brother a few years 
back gave R. Samuel a fear that he was developing double vision. Mark joined the Student Council, 
but just to get the tuna sandwiches. There, he proved a vital architect of the controversial "Pink 
Zone". Mark Van Unpronouncable will most likely end up proving that he does not in fact exist, 
and will thereafter cease to. Prior to this, Mark plans to attend either U of T. UBC. Waterloo, or 
the Institute Of Going A Bit Red in Helsinki.

Majid Vaughan 



One (il the 5 ■■liters" in this Grad class. Majid (aka Silly Negro.'?'?'.' Almighty, Flat-Top) fondly 
remembers being irritating on the junior school backwall in gr. 2 and KOing J. P. in gr. I. One 
of the infamous ■■Thetis Lake Cliff-Jumping Crew", he proudly conquered the ama/.ing 15ft. jump, 
without the attainment of Casava relons. Also, together with D.R . Y.M.. D.D.. and D.B.. he ter- 
rorized the Bio 1 1 class and became the "■leader" of the demonic back-row that was sent to GEN- 
ETIC HELL by P.G We'll miss this Jordan-WANNABEE who can gun the ■■TRIFECTAS". 
BOK-CHOY! 



Charles Von Maldeghem 



Chuck came to us back in grade seven from across the Rockies promising to make the next five 
years nothing less than exciting. Soon after his arrival, he earned the respect of his peers with his 
generosity and cheerfulness But behind the ■■Mr. Nice Guy" image he projected, there was an in- 
furiated reincarnated Fiihrer. who ruthlessly sought power. He climbed the ranks of the political 
hierarchy to become the Head of the six-man Gestapo at International House. Many talents were 
to be found in Chuck^s Germanic blood: the drums, beer and food. He will be unveiling these talents 
at Toronto next year. We wish him well in his pursuit of big bucks, blonde broads, and Bavarian beer. 





Conrad Walker 



Conrad, illustrious member of the Freak of Nature Club, has graced the halls of SMU for three 
years. This happy cowboy's memories include passionfruit Jello. loony letters from the ■■Harem", 
the burrow and many a park with J.M (Ruckle. Cypress. Beacon Hill. . .). Con has contributed 
to almost every facet of school life, including rugby, squash, track and theatre to name only a few. 
This modest guy never ceases to amaze and FRU.STRATE his friends with his enviable ability to 
excel at anything (1 can't ski, really!). He is advised to ease up on the corny jokes, beware the fire- 
place that bites and get GET OFF THE PHONE (love S.H.). Conrad will always be remembered 
for the strut, the stripe and the instalogs. Lastly, this prefect's pal would just like to say . . . We 
love you Conrad, Oh yes we do . . . Thanks for knowing how to scuba dive. 



Susan Wall 



Susie Wall, '■the little Wall kid." "Zus" arrived at SMU in grade 8. Peen was captain of the first 
XI Hockey Team, and was a valuable player on the tennis, badminton and track teams throughout 
her SMU career. Zus. the invincible redhead, still cherishes her love letters from D,G., memorable 
moments with R F. O.G.. D.H.. M'?. Anyways, shaking her bod with Sog. visits to Banff, Drinkin' 
Lincoln, babysitting the genuine draft. U.K. Tour, late night cereal chats with some disturbance 
from the bathroom above. And well. Zus, as for the hole in the Levis'. Joe will never know. Zus 
met up with MVC in the beginning of grade 10. The chat under the porch made us realize - we 
had no idea. Now we've seen the light. We're ready for whatever they throw at us. and we're only 
bound to succeed. Susie will attend Queens next year. Here's to the soul talks, the CRAZY times, 
and as for the game, we won. 10-4 Serg. Love you. Sonja.

Kevin Wallis 



Kevin came to SMU in grade 7 from Gibsons B.C. with a large entourage of Heavy Metal posters, 
from there he moved into D. & D. and Phil Collins. Throughout grade 9 he was a happy-go-lucky 
country bumpkin, but later on in grade 10 he moved in with D.K. and R.F.. They influenced him 
towards other substances and nightlife activities. In grade 1 1 Wally joined the 100 club along with 
the later entry of A.W. and he also obtained a steady woman: C.H.. From here the adventures of 
SPEV. Buck and Garf blossomed with trips to Will's party where he encountered his first gang mem- 
bers, Seattle, where we met up with two buddies. Buck Freeman and Wally Thompkins, and to Whis- 
tler where their two new buddies took leave of them at some bar. Wally will be remembered by 
all as that outgoing party man who feels that sinning in secret is not sinning at all. isn't that right P.K.T.? 



Alexander Wardle 



Alex arrived at SMU boarding in grade 7. fresh from York House with his sidekick "Grizz" Due 
to his impressive smile A.J. was quickly given the nickname "Buck". Al kept quiet for the first 
couple of years. It is rumored that he spent his weekends at Whistler. With the arrival of the in- 
famous Edmontonians in grade 10 Buck began to appreciate the finer points of nightlife in Victoria. 
Using his always successful line "HEY WOMAN!!" Buck found himself a real woman. T.S. began 
by helping A.J. acquire an extra week of skiing. Later she tried to entice him out of intense study 
with limited success. Buck is sure to remember imitating Niagara Falls at N.B.'s, meeting hungry 
Asian gang members, meeting his identical twin Mr. Freemen and sidekick Mr. Tompkins from 
Montana, and also late night trips to Bino's. And never to be forgotten: playing the Easter bunny 
with Spev and Garf on Hallowe'en! Always remember the immoral words at the Nuge: "Candy 
is dandy, but liquor is quicker!", and other quotes such as "No prospecting" or "No golddiggers". 





Kristina Watson 



"Cleanliness is next to Godliness . . ." 

Kristina Watson: 
KE.W. skied in from Norway early last year. She brought with her a lave for the odd. the exotic, 
the foreign and most of all late night reading. Krisina loves a very clean room and almost came 
to blows with her roommate last year. Even though she was often tired it was because of those "late 
night-I-have-to-go-to-sleep-but will-keep talking-to-2am"chats. Badminton and cross country were 
her athletic pursuits and the cello even knew what Kristina could do if she had time to practice! 
In her ATCO mansion this year, several times this year, our beloved Housekeeper still pursues staunch 
views on tidiness. We will miss her next year even though I know that she will probably be found 
in Texas or Botswana. 



Christine Winsby 



Christine (a.k.a. Wins) arrived at SMU in gr. 10. a refugee from Oak Bay. Over the past 3 years 
she has adapted well, especially since a certain fateful introduction in gr. 1 1 that will always be 
remembered. "Kris . . ." "yes . . .". pool parties, and Garibaldi's - LOOK AT IT! Some favourite 
pastimes include camping and swirls with S.I., New York, ACDC, Dylan, of course the Stones 
concert, and has been known to book the odd flight to Edmonton. Chris will most likely be seen 
next year taking it easy on some tropical island with K.J.

Kenneth Wong 



"Fourteen - Love. Game Bird." 

Ken came lo S.VIU in grade 7 and has managed to survive the different challenges thrown his way 
m school, sports, and boarding. Having been the best student not on the Headmaster's honour roll 
for a few years. Ken has proved that he can play with the best when it comes to academic confron- 
tations. The same can be said about Ken in sports. After a miserable start in rugby. Ken has become 
an impiirtant figure in the badminton team, which has been going to the B.C. Provincials every year 
Ken has played. Even in grade 12 when the team is rebuilding. Ken has captained the team to be 
the I.S.A. Champion. Boarding saw Ken as a quiet person who spent his free time studying or sleep- 
ing. His roommates from different years have found different qualities in him that led him being 
chosen as a prefect in the ATCO Trailer. Ken w ill definitely be missed as he heads off to the east. 
However Ken will never forget the bear and the jock in Gr. 10. the same jock in gr. 1 1 . the uncoach- 
able gang with Mr PG in Kamloops. and his new sister! Keep up the good work. Ken! 



Jessica Woolliams 



Looking back when I am 80. I'll see SMU clothes, the fake background and the same classy fake 
roses that everyone holds; even if I don't remember that 1 had a personality. 1 will know that I grad- 
uated. I have millions of friends. I leave w ith countless half memories of w ild and crazy excitement. 
The kind of friendship bonding memories of carefree vouthfullness that I will tell in tall tales to 
people so they will instantly want to know me. I will likely get PHD's from Harsard where 1 will 
study everything that is at all mtellectual. Like everyone who truly makes it. I will become nau- 
siatingly materialistic, socially superficial and die happy. Seriously. I'm glad I came because there 
are people I could never forget.

Do 1 dare? - Do I dare to eat a peach? 
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach. 

Shy, demure Tricia Yu first graced the halls of SMU in gr.8, unbeknownst to all, Trix had a wacky 
side which emerged over the years. In gr. 9 the gray halls of the Middle School were brightened 
by a certain red-head, but gr. 10 saw her break away from her old ties. onK to become magnetized 
by C.B. Travelling through Europe with J P. will be her fondest memory (Eurorail luggage racks, 
one-armed unknowns, the sensitive mechanic & Kachig') The Squamish logging road is a memory 
she would rather forget soon ( "This is a nightmare, this is only a nightmare"!. Recently she can 
be seen boatin' around in the Lude without the 6ft. surfboard, Safeway shopping cart and A.W.

ACTIVITIES 




Student Council 



STUDENT COUNCIL 
1990-1991 

I never cease to be amazed at the 
quality of the young men and women 
who serve on the Student Council. 
This year is no exception, for once 
more the members have exhibited dil- 
igence and enterprise in their efforts 
on behalf of their colleagues. 

Time and again it has to be ex- 
plained to the student body that we 
are not there just to satisfy a wish list. 
In fact, much of our work goes on 
quietly behind the scenes as we attend 
to a myriad of seemingly small mat- 
ters. It is this steady, low profile 
approach however, which oils the ma- 
chinery that helps the school to run 



smoothly for the benefit of all. 

Having said this I would be remiss 
in omitting to mention the success of 
the Tuck Shop re-introduced this year 
at our behest and run so ably by a few 
dedicated SMUM's. The council also 
had a hand in pressing for the Peer 
Counselling programme, the Life 
Skills programme, and unwittingly 
served to focus Administration 's atten- 
tion on the problems of nicotine ad- 
diction. This resulted in the "Pink 
Zone ' ' being established and SMU be- 
coming a 100% smoke free zone in 
1991. 

Many of the problems brought to 
our attention centre on the inadequate 
facilities on campus. However, word 
has it that very real progress may be 



expected in the course of the next few 
months. After years of frustration, 
this is marvellous news and in thank- 
ing the council members for their ded- 
ication all I can say is that if you think 
SMU is a great place now, come back 
next year, "Cause you ain't seen 
nothing yet"!!

A SMALL PART OF HISTORY: 

On the evening of March 4th, ele- 
ven students from S.M.U. played a 
small but important part in Canada's 
history. They met with a representa- 
tive from the Keith Spicer Commission 
in order to play their part in the 
Citizen's Forum on the Future of 
Canada. The occasion represented an 
opportunity for them to exercise their 
civic responsibilities and to discuss the 
major issues facing this country. The 
following young men and women de- 
serve credit for giving of their time in 
order to serve Canada. It should be 
noted that unlike the members of the 
Commission they did not receive 
$600.00 per day for their work.

S.M. U. played host to over forty stu- 
dents from more than a dozen schools 
on Vancouver Island. Each delegate 
assumed the role of a Head of State 
of a Commonwealth country and in 
this capacity represented his or her 
adopted country 's policies in some vig- 
orous debates on major world topics 
of today. 

AshifJaffer and James Morley rep- 
resented the Maldives. Ann Behennah 
and David Didluck, the United King- 
dom, and David Chmiel chaired the 
conference in the role of the Secretary 
General of the Commonwealth.

Amnesty International 




BR: Rachel Phillips. Patricia Yu, Julian Castle, Jennifer Popkin. Kristen Semmons, Pagan McKay. Margo McLaren, Amber Regan F.R: Heather

"Amnesty International is a worldwide human rights movement which works impartially for the release of prisoners 
of conscience; men, woman, and children detained anywhere for their beliefs, colour, ethnic origin, sex, religion or 
language, provided they have neither used nor advocated the use of violence. 

A.I. opposes torture and the death penalty in all cases without reservation and advocates fair and prompt trials 
for all political prisoners. ' ' 

The SMU group was founded in September by Kristen Semmens and Pagan MacKay and was the first of its type 
in the school. The group has worked throughout the year and has been involved in activities such as fundraising, 
letter writing and public education. It is hoped A.I. will remain one of SMU students concerned in coming years.

Environment Group 




The environment group at St. Michaels University School was composed 
of students from grades nine to twelve, and met regularly to discuss the state 
of our environment and methods we might put to use in order to improve its 
condition. This year, about twenty students frequented meetings and under 
the guidance of Mr. Jackson, Head of the Science Department, managed to 
achieve our goal of establishing a functional recycling program at the school, 
as well as promoting environmental awareness by means of garbage clean-up 
around Victoria, and excursions to wilderness parks such as the endangered 
Carmanah Valley. By being part of this group, we learned the importance 
of a delicately-balanced ecosystem and the detrements which occur when hu- 
mans continually abuse the environment. Involvement in such extra-curricular 
committees not only provides the student with a more comprehensive idea about 
the nature of our planet, but also allows him or her to formulate and voice 
worthwhile opinions. We thank Mr. "Action" Jackson for his enthusiastic 
and knowledgeable contributions and reassure him we will never forget that 
the acceleration due to gravity is 10 metres per second squared. It is believed 
he stated this 9.8 times each day.

For 4 days in May, Mr. Skinner and the Drama Department put on the 
very first Shakespeare play at SMU. "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is a 
fantasy play, full of fairies and love. The four performances went off without 
a hitch (???) None of the cast will forget the night Bill missed his cue and 
we heard some wonderful improv from both him and Dan. We all loved 
Lawrence's portrayal of a WOMAN and LOVER, Jason's wall, and of course 
the dogs and their unpredictable, yet wonderful performances. 

The cast was quite large due to Mr. Skinner's introduction of "the forest 
dwellers". They literally were the forest, and were a great addition to the fun 
and excitement of the play. Everyone had a great time, and can hardly wait 
for the next time, same place, different play (we hope). 





This year's musical 'Grease' was an incredible mecca of acting, sing- 
ing and dancing, that reminded us again of the dramatic talent to be 
found in SMU'S hallowed halls. Not only was the show a success, but 
we also had the time of our lives (even at 9:00 am on Sunday morn- 
ings). Under the fearless and ever-encouraging direction of Mr. Skin- 
ner, the entire cast began to feel and understand those unforgettable 
1950 vibrations. Kim Brieland's brilliant choreography and Mrs. 
Humphrey's and Ms. Gwilliams's vocal inspirations combined to pro- 
duce 40 odd die hard bee-bops. We will never forget the painful lifts 
that left menacing bruises, strangely resembling hand-prints, or the 
abuse our hair received from 3-litre tubs of purple gel (I don't think 
anyone even knew that gel came in tubs). No one will ever forget our 
cruel transformation of the demure Mairi Babb into a wild and crazy 
biker chick (with apologies to Mr. & Mrs. Babb). Josh Ball's natural 
talents were viewed many times in rehearsing the drive-in movie scene, 
while Mel Fike, Ayelet Porzecanski and Sarah Hentschel bonded in 

a holy pink satin sisterhood, still in secretive existence. Dan Fill, Richard Stone, Chad Sevan, Jason Winters & Jason Penaluna were 
alarmingly convincing as 'greasers' - parts viciously rumored to have been labelled 'cheezy'. Nevertheless, Mr. Skinner assures us there 
was no type casting; an incredible relief to the players of Patty and Eugene. Mr. Parker made a memorable guest appearance with Morgan 
McLeod, and amazed everyone with his talent. (Pat Sajak may have a little competition in the growing world of game show hosts). All 
the journey through, the cast held together with their energetic performance and dedication to the show. 

A big thank-you to the stage crew, the McPherson theatre and to Mrs. McLeod and Mrs. McCracken who miraculously managed 
to clothe the entire cast of a show with the most costume changes in the history ofSMU musicals. To the builders of the set, the light 
operators the make-up artists - thank-you once again. Your hard work and determination was appreciated by the entire cc^t. 

With all the time we spent; the last-minute rehearsals, the moments of panic, the late-nights in the booming metropolis of Chinatown, 
the urgent last preparations between scenes, the aches and pains, the hoarse voices and the overwhelming sensation of acute fatigue 
. . .I'm sure we can all say that we would do it again . . . ten times over. Why? Because there's nothing like putting on a show when 
you're in the Skinner Zone.

Hawaii: Island Hop '91 





It was a cold, misty March morning when 40 SMU students gathered at the Victoria airport 
with baggage in hand. We smirtced at each other's passports and rubbed the sleep away from 
our eyes. What seemed like many hours later, we landed in Honolulu at 1:30 pm (their time). 
Tired, hungry, overdressed and pale we rushed in groups of 3 to our hotel rooms. The weather 
the first day was somewhat deceiving, as the warm sunshine was soon to leave us for a fa- 
miliar home climate . . . RAIN. We performed 3 concerts during our 10 day adventure. The 
first was in a park on a very windy day. In between running after our music and dealing 
with technical difficulties, we sang and played a very good show. Next, we went to a local 
private high school. We, too, were entertained by those who felt our music was good enough 
to dance to. Finally, we played at a native elementary school, where we received lei's, as 
well as a very warm welcome. Spare time was mostly spent at the beach, or wittingly bar- 
gaining at the International Market. Our meal plan was perfect for those hoping to diet on 
our trip, as our all-you-can-eat-exactly-the-same-menu - every-day soon became very unat- 
tractive. Our tours of the island, on the bus with Ben, were most memorable, and, of course, 
all of us tried to stump Stu (while watching the floods). Yet this tropical ambush had little 
affect on our spirits and smiles. After 11 days, our call for home was coming. We all found 
ourselves tired, yet rested, tanned, yet still pale, but most of all happy and glad to be home.

Spring Trip To Mexico 

At an appallingly early hour on the morning of March 14, twenty-nine 
students left for 1 3 days of sun and culture in Mexico. The first few days were 
filled with history - the great Cathedral, the museum of Anthropology, the 
Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe and climbing ancient Indian pyramids at 
Teotihuacan. 

Exploring the city revealed elegant mansions. Chapultepee Park, the endless 
streets, Reforma Avenue, the Zona Rosa, and on the edge of the city, the shan- 
tytowns of the poor. 

After a drive across country, the second stop was the old silver mining 
town of Taxco and the first swimming pool of the trip. A couple of days' rest here, then down to 
the beaches and lights of Acapulco and Ixtapa. 

All good trips have their legends. Two students found themselves staring down the guns of the 
bodyguards of a vacationing judge they had inadvertently disturbed. Macho's Cafe became home away 
from home. Parties in a beach house club in Ixtapa proved memorable as well. 

Everyone has their own special memories: discovering a deserted beach with a rented jeep, buying 
silver in Taxco, shopping in the markets, finding that Spanish really was spoken as learned in class, 
mariachi bands and the Ballet Folklorico, rugged mountains, colonial towns, walking in the sand, 
para-sailing and playing in the waves - or just sitting in a cafe with good friends in a different world, 
practicing the popular phrase: "Dos coca colas, por favor".

Public Speaking 




Gillie Easdon, who placed fourth in the Interna- 
tional Public Speaking Competition, qualified for 
the World Competition in England. Along with Gre- 
fell Featherstone she flew across the Atlantic Tea 
Cup to attend this multicultural event over Spring 
Break. The contest boasted competitors from Eng- 
land, USA, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, as well as 
Cyprus. The competition was heavy and the talent, 
incredible. It was a wonderful voyage full of extra- 
ordinary occurences.

Grad Ski Trip 



The Grad Ski Trip for 1991 was a fun and fabulous weekend for all involved. Most everyone did the expected, 
and some even did the unexpected: they went SKIING The luxurious accommodations at Zeppo's (with ensuite 
bathrooms and laundry service) was enjoyed by one and all, although the ATCO trailers rated 5 stars in compa- 
rison. The trip was an unqualified success -full of sharing, caring, daring, and partying. Thanks to Mrs. Stolle 
and Mr. Featherstone for coming along, and thanks to Josh Ball for spending the entire weekend lurking in the 
basement.

Music '91 



The 1990/91 school year for the senior music department was exciting, challenging, busy and fun filled. The classes 
included grade 9, 10, 11, and 12 bands, choirs and strings as well as music composition in grades 11 and 12. 

We started out the year with the Thanksgiving Harvest service where the choir performed beautifully under the 
direction of Mrs. Humphreys. In November there was the Remembrance Day service at which Mr. MacKay's concert 
band played a very convulted arrangement of Bach's "Forget me not O Dearest Lord". We were also priviledged 
to have Mr. Buckingham play the pipes and Kerstin Gustafsen play a most expressive version of "The Last Post" 
and "Reveille". 

The fall concert followed at the end of November and was a very successful event with all the musicians in the 
school participating. Everyone enjoyed the music, staging and lights and went home wondering what it would be like 
to have a real performing arts center. A few of the items to remember were Susan Platts solo in "A Prayer to St. 
Francis", the outrageous solos in "Foo's Blues" and an actual complete gathering of the orchestra for the "St. Paul 
Suite". Our thanks to Scott Baker for his expert attention to the lights and sound. 

In December there was the Carol Service at Christ Church Cathedral. The strings started the service with Manfredini's 
"Christmas Concerto" and the Senior Brass Ensemble played Purcell's "Trumpet Voluntary" as well as providing 
accompaniment to the carols. The Senior Chamber Choir did wonderful versions of "And Love Was Born" and the 
"Canon Carol" to add a nice touch to the program. 

The school musical this year was "Grease" and under the combined musical direction of Mr. MacKay and Ms. 
Gwilliam, a Pit Band was formed with Stewart Butterfield and Paul Malin on Guitars, David Didluck and Thia Frank- 
lin on Saxes, Kirsten Benzon on drums, Ms. Gwilliam on piano and Mr. MacKay on the bass. The show was a great 
success and some of the rock 'n' roll solos were exceptional. Mrs. Humphreys certainly learned a lot about rock 'n' 
roll while rehearsing the vocalists. Four hours after the cast party we were off to Hawaii! 

Tour time again and the choir and stage band were off for fun and music in the sun (liquid as it was). A good 
time was had by all. See the accompanying article and photos. Musically, the Hawaiian tour was a great experience 
and the group played a very pleasing repetoire for several schools. 

Spring brought with it "The Fine Arts Focus in May" a chance for all three campuses to show off their fine arts 
programs to the rest of the SMU family. We were all pleasantly surprised by the quantity and the quality of works 
presented by the ari, music and drama departments. Mr. Jones Senior Art presentation along with the Senior Spring 
Concert was a night to remember. The Senior Jazz Band presented two very challenging jazz pieces; Ms. Conrad 
presented her last items as string teacher, (She wanted to play more so she left the school at the end of the year.) 
Mrs. Humphrey's choirs were again brilliant, and who will be able to forget or perhaps forgive Bijan (What's Up 
Doc?) Ahmadi for his computerized music piece, "Bovine Insulin". A good time was had by all. 

It was time to say farewell to Scott Baker and thank him for all the extra time and effort he put into making our 
concerts a success over the years. He was pleasantly surprised to win, and well deserving of the major music award, 
the Blencoe Cup, at graduation. One last chance for Scott to hand over the reins to his protege's Chris Hibbins and 
Robert Banfield occured at the Spring Fair where they did the sound for numerous musical acts including the Senior 
Jazz Band. Thank you Scott. 

Also in May there was a very special event happen in the chapel. An Evening of Poetry and Song with poet P.K. 
Page, soloists and small vocal ensembles gave many of our fine young singers a chance to shine. It was all so well 
done that it is hard to single out any particular performance. Mrs. Humphreys is to be commended for bringing the 
best out of these fine young singers. Everything from Mozart to Les Miserables and Lollipop was represented. 

The last events which had to be put together for this year were an orchestra for the prize day ceremony and an 
ensemble for graduation. With the departure of Ms. Conrad, Mr. MacKay reeled in as many string players as possible 
to put together "Handel's Fireworks Music" for the prize day. A Senior Orchestra was bom and will continue in 
the new school year. 

Graduation saw the Senior Jazz Band in action with the addition of a few strings along with an Acapella choir. 
Veterans of the program, Scott Baker, Mark Van Raamsdonk, and Kirsten Gustafsen got to solo over "Swingin' 
Sheperd Blues" and with a very nostalgic version of "As Time Goes BY" we were out for the summer.

How to Keep the Relatives from Returning 

Have you d t^er be en in that situation where the family's most annoying relatives are in town and you have to entertain 
them, very much against your will? Well here's a few ways that will get them out quickly and keep 'em from coming back. 

Disliked relatives are like lice - unless you gas 'em out, they'll stick around and aggravate you. 

It is important to start the evening off on a bad note, so if they're coming to dinner, perhaps this is the night to serve 
p the infamous leftover surprise or try out granny's liver paste. (Of course, you and your family will be on a diet this 
evening and will have to settle for shrimp salad.) Also use this evening as an opportunity to use up that flat popshop 
pop that's been hovering in your fridge. For desert - frozen Kool-Aid popsicles with salt instead of sugar is always an 
undesirable surprise. Or else, bake up a batch of fudge nut brownies with large nut shells in them. Pleasure is rarely 
attributed to broken teeth. 

Next it is important that they are as uncomfortable as possible, so glare at an existing blemish on their face or pretend 
that there is one and occasionally smile inappropriately making gestures indicating that you've been looking at their defect 
all night. 

Offer them a seat in that old wooden chair (that gives everyone splinters), - you know, the one you dragged out of 
the mildewed attic for this special occasion. 

Conversation should lack as much interest as possible. Talk frequently about things they were never a part of. Formulate 
anecdotes of Trivial Pursuit questions that stumped you, or talk about the breathtaking rubiks cube tournament you watched 
on All Sooke Day. After an hour or two of these stories, I guarantee they won't be back in a hurry. 

For entertainment, try and avoid a game as it might provide a means of fun. If you must play a game cheat as con- 
spicuously as possible. This will cause conflict when you create "house rules" that are not in the guidelines of the game 
- such as after your first role (say it's 6) announce that the first person rolling 6 gets Boardwalk. The best entertainment 
to get "em out, in 1/2 an hour, is T.V.. Flip it to a good shown for about 5 minutes so that your guests will become 
involved with the plot, then change it to the realty channel of the weather channel for the rest of the evening. Pretend 
to be fascinated by the 80% chance of showers tomorrow. Better yet, put on a scrambled pay T.V. channel and comment 
on how you love it that you can great movies for free. 
(^ Finally, when they've had enough for one night, insist that they take home a doggie bag of the dinner leftovers. Make 
sure you give 'em a shopping bag full of that food you despise. Once they reach the driveway, it's always an unwelcome 
sign if you turn out all the lights in the house. If you follow these simple steps you will never see these relatives again. 
It's what we do at the Fill home.

"CARNIVORE'S PARADISE" 

The tour guide introduced the dismal street as "Carnivore's Paradise", a title rightly deserved in this haven of 
slain story-book animal life. Peter Cottontail and his relations were strung up by their furry entirety in the shop win- 
dows. Certainly there would be no more stealth of delectable carrots from Farmer Brown's enticing yard. Chicken 
Little had been assaulted, and plucked, but not yet beheaded. Never again would his desperate cries of ' 'Henny Penny, 
the sky is falling" be heard from this sadly displayed carcass. Further down the road, the cow who had once jumped 
over the moon had been flayed, and decapitated, along with his fellow bovine compatriots. She was hanging upside- 
down, in a most undignified manner from an icy cold hook, or was it a sickle? The whole block embodied the veg- 
etarian and the nursery rhyme lovers' most unspeakably horrific nightmare. Wilbur, the marvelous pig's feet had 
been neatly pickled and set upon a shelf in a window, for sale to any sadistic being. This amputation would have 
surely inhibited his glorious jigs, if he still lived. The buildings had all been painted a dull gray, and were further 
tarnished by the soot, left as a sad reminder of the Industrial Revolution in England. The faceless employees unhooked 
Donald Duck from his place, center stage, front window, of an untitled shop. Everything was very quiet, void of any 
joy or music. Poor little Bo-Peep would surely never find her sheep now; for they had been skinned, chopped up, 
and packaged separately for the mutton-thirsty individual. The cheap ugly cars waited at the curb for their owners 
to return from the hunt, bringing Porky Pig, the loveable stuttering comedian, home for dinner in a black bag. 
"Carnivore's Paradise" was full of killed, slaughtered, disfigured, and hanged animals; a veritable delight for the 
worthy meat devourer. fw-

Man has been given the senses to enhance his own existence. The sense to see beauty, to hear music, to taste, 
to smell, to touch. Such senses have given man a will on which to survive. They privilege the soul and make paths 
for pain and sacrifice. There is no soul free of pain or sacrifice; thus too, there is no soul lacking happiness. The 
shortest, acquaintance between man affects him, the faintest most fondest memory holds fast unto the heart of man. 
For it is at the heart that we become existent, an actual being. 

Friendship began as early as man had eyes to see and a mind to think with. It started when the first signs of com- 
munication were possible. Each word, was a tool, a technique used either to manipulate or to praise. There is little 
superior power to that of a word. How it weaves its message through the mind until at last it imprints its final meaning 
either to taint or to be remembered warmly. When given the senses man strived to achieve friendship and with it 
came power. Power to destroy the soul of another to tear away at the foundations of a fragile masterpiece. When 
encountering others, it is important to remember the fragile state of their soul the same as your own. Percieve it 
as a privilege unto yourself (that being in the presence of another.) It is important we do not wallow in self-pity but 
rather learn from our experiences, and our own hurt. 

An author unknown once wrote 

"Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendour in the grass, glory in the flower, we will grieve not, rather 
find strength in what remains behind. " 

Friendship is a prized gift, and should be treated as such. This is my own personal thank-you to my friends, you 
all know who you are.

CLOTHES AND SMILES 

The naked but clothed stares at the masses, here 

the message seen not, was seen to late 

He despairs for he is not there 

As the seven legged man begins to prate 

The masses sit, with faces set in stone 
their souls forever lost 
to all who would dare to judge alone 
by the way their clothes did cost 

The clothed sits, doing nothing . . saying nothing 
for his voice would merely make mournful song 
for he is among the missing 
and his troubles are miles long 

No Solitude in inner sanctum finds he 

that in company shall be 

his outer self to 

like his smile never to be found too 

But found in proper place art like Escher 
To avoid his soul feeling wretching 
he stands with clothes by cost to measure 
with his smile straining

It y/as another very enjoyable badminton season. For the sixth year in a row, the team captured the Lower Island Cham- 
pionship rebounding from an early loss to Mt. Doug. Other highlights included hosting most successful Independent Schools 
tournaments, with the Boys and the Girls events being run on the same day by the same school for the first time. 

Unfortunately, conflicts with Easter Holiday dates and other outgoing trips did not allow the team to participate in the 
provincial finals, which were held in Port Albemi. Judging from the finish of the other Victoria schools which competed, 
a 6th or 7th place finish would not have been an unreasonable projection. 

A special thanks to Ken Wong, Fiona Lim, Susie Wall and Pam Lewis for special service to the team over the past year. 
Goodbye also to assistant coach Elizabeth Mcleish. She has contributed so much. 

With a number of solid grade 10 and 11 players returning, and with the arrival of new talent from the Middle School, 

Badminton at SMU for 1991-1992

Squash 




Regular team practices were held at the 
Racquet Club on Tuesday and Wednes- 
day afternoons throughout the second 
term. While unexpected snowfalls 
forced cancellation of two matches, two 
were completed against Brentwood Col- 
lege. The S.M. U. players, most of whom 
are active tournament competitors, were 
not seriously challenged in either match. 

At the I.S.A. Championships held this 
year at Brentwood College on March 2nd, 
the S.M.U. Sr. team of Jeff Blumberg, 
Cory Lee, Thomas Petzing, Grady O'Neil 
and Ilya Herb defeated Brentwood Col- 
lege, Shawnigan Lake School and St. 
George's to capture first place. An Under 
16 competition was held on the same day 
at Shawnigan with S.M.U. and Brent- 
wood also in attendance. The team with 
Mike Smith, Philip Bodley-Scott, Kyle 
Michael, Graham Daniel and Tom 
Mueller was able to defeat the Shawnigan 
team, but suffered a narrow loss in the 
final match against Brentwood to finish 
in second place. 

Eighteen S.M.U. players competed in 
the 22nd Pacific Northwest Junior 
Squash Championships held Feb. 15-17 
at the Racquet Club. Senior team cap- 
tain, Mike Brown, finished a respectable 
fourth in the Boys Under 19 Open event 
while teammate Jamie McRae was a 
finalist in the "B" event. Corry Lee 
placed second in the Boys Under 16 divi- 
sion, continuing what has been to date, 
a most promising year. 

Jeffrey Blumberg earned a berth on the Provincial Squash team attending the Canada Games in Charlottetown, 
P.E.I, in February. The B.C. team managed an upset win over Alberta and returned home with a silver medal.

The Junior girls have done some fine work. A preseason tournament at Lambrick Park revealed some surprising and 
welcome strengths among the grade 9's, particularly with Cristie Greig and Cheryl Nelms. As the season progressed, Kim 
Wahl, Alison Burdett and Michelle Ip emerged as true performers, also supported by many hard-working reserves, led by 
Tamsyn Pengilly. Also critical to the team's success was the spirited play of point guard Allison Garwood. She captured 
the MVP award in the Nanimo tournament, and spearheaded the team to its best ever Lower Island finish. 

The season was thoroughly enjoyable, and I wish all the players every success in 1992.

The Senior Girls Basketball Team defeated Esquimalt (80-46) in their last league game, thereby qual- 
ifyi^S for the Island Tournament. This capped off a successful season that saw a young, inexperienced 
team develop into a very competitive senior team. The future looks promising for the team, as it is losing 
only Jobi Norman and the captain, Steph Ayotte, to graduation. Fortunately, both the leading scorer, 
Margaret Fonger, and the leading rebounder, Cari Burdett, will be returning next year. Also returning 
will be four grade tens who had successful seasons. They are Shannon Valdai, Kyle Fulton, Nancy Marks, 
and Sarah Longhurst.

The Junior boys completed a very busy and demanding season. Experience was lacking at the outset, but steady improve- 
ment was made through hard work and enthusiasm. The season record was I9W - 16L. 

These thirty-five games included 8 tournaments. In league play we finished second with a 4W-2L record and qualified for 
the city championship. A52-50 victory over Landsdowne in the quarterfinals qualified the Blue Devils for the Semis against 
Coquitz- Leading by two at half-time, the team could not find the hoop in the second half and lost by 8 points. A second 
opportunity to go to the island championships came against Spencer. In a very exciting match we lost in the final second 54-52. 

The last games of the season were in the I.S.A. tournament. We reached the final and defeated St. Georges' 57-53, mak- 
ing up for an early season defeat by the Saints. 

In closing, I would like to thank all members of the team for their dedication and love of the game. In particular I would 
like to acknowledge the leadership and expertise of Hywel Jones and Damian Grant, who proved to be an excellent team 
captain. Other members of the team were Matthew Franklin, Bill Hann, Johnny Chang and Renton Leversedge, who were 
in grade 10. The grade 9 members included Andrew Shostak, Emmet Connolly, Andrew Barry and Roger Huang.

It was a wonderful season. Hard work, unselfishness, and commitment to defence let us successfully negotiate the move 
to the AAA level, and we were rewarded with five invitational Tournament wins, the Island Championship, and a creditable 
8th place finish in the EC's. 

Though team play was the essential ingredient to success, several individuals enjoyed banner years. Milan Uzelac was 
our top scorer, a ferocious competitor who performed best when the pressure was greatest. At point guard, Jason Reynolds 
was quietly efficient. Defensively he was superb, and joined some illustrious company in winning the Island MVP award. 
Easily our most exciting player was Jeremy Cordle, whose breathtaking speed and leaping ability gained him and us nu- 
merous dunks. Inside, Jan Schmidt and the versatile Jeremy Harris battled all season against bigger opponents, and were 
instrumental in our success with their rebounding, scoring and defensive play. 

Off the bench. Max Humphries and Ryan Van Roode could supply instant offence, while the much improved Brendan 
Barry and Chris Isherwood battled valiantly inside against the giants. Also, off the bench came David Radick and Mark 
Grist who supplied timely minutes, while Ed Crothall also showed tremendous commitment. This deep and talented group 
was strengthened at Christmas by the arrival of Stephen Nash and Jamie Miller, both of whom, though ineligible for league 
play, contributed magnificently in the limited opportunities they received in exhibition action. 

The hard luck story of the year was Brent McLay, who only played a handful of games due to a most astonishing run 
of freak injuries. It was pleasing to see him stay involved by taking on the managerial duties. 

A sincere thankyou to a talented band of minor officials, led by Scott Baker, who were simply superb throughout. Being 
invited to work at the Island tournament, and later the Canadian Senior National Team games a UVIC is testimony to 
theirskills. Tothestaff, thank you for tolerating our occasionally missing classes. Toparents, thank you for your friendship 
and continued support. To the fans, your fanatical cheering was the difference in several games. We hope to repay you 
with exciting play next season.

With a tremendous amount of hard work, determination, and laughter, the Senior Girls' Team enjoyed a successful year. 

Early season accomplishments included a first place finish in a small but competitive SMU Playday, as well as an eighth 
place finish in the Pacific Christian Tournament. By mid-season, steady skill development resulted in an excellent third 
place finish in the Independent Schools Tournament in Vancouver. 

Continued improvement and team spirit were evident throughout league play and were deciding factors in the Lower Is- 
land play-offs. Great power hitting by Sarah Hentschel, Lisa Cohen and Shannon Valdai, accurate setting by Lindsay McLaugh- 
lin and team captain Nadia Herb, and solid team support resulted in a berth in the AA Island play-offs. 

In this competition, after three days of exciting play, marathon matches and a number of sudden death points, the team 
finished eighth. 

Congratulations to all involved, who made even our old uniforms look first class. Special thanks to Gillian Robertson, 
our hard working team manager.

Jr., Sr. Cross-Country 






The Junior Cross- 
Country team enjoyed a 
fine season this year un- 
der the direction of Mr. 
Peach. Due to bad 
weather and School Board 
strikes, the first race was 
cancelled and the second, 
poorly attended. The first 
' 'real ' ' race of the season 
was at Beaver Lake, in 
very cold, wet and muddy 
conditions. All of our run- 
ners finished in the top 
twenty-five of their respec- 
tive races. Three hotly 
contested meets followed 
at Juan de Fuca. Lam- 
brick Park and UVic. The 
UVic race doubled as the 
City Championships and 
our Participation paid off. 
Hence, the Midget Girls 
team placed 3rd, Midget 
Boys A-team 2nd, B-team 
5th, the Junior Girls 3rd 
and the Junior boys 4th. 

Excellent individual 
performances were re- 
corded by I. Druce, R. 
Forbes, K. Wahl, C. Cronin, R. Grewal, C. Michel, A. Detrano, K. Yarker, and C. Nelms. Thank you to all who supported. 

Special thanks to Mr. Peach (coach) and Ms. Keziere (avid supporter). Congratulations to the whole team!

Senior X.C. 

Both the boys and girls senior cross country teams again enjoyed a satisfying season. With a solid team effort from all 
the girls involved, the girls team placed an impressive 2nd in the city League, 4th at the Islands and 19th at the Provincial 
Championships. The boys team, led by David Radick's positive enthusiasm and speed, placed 3rd in the city league, 4th 
at the Islands, and a most respectable 6th at the Provincials, held at Becan Hill Park. Special thanks goes out to Pam 
Lewis, Mike 
Ellis, and Da- 
vid Radick 
who have sup- 
ported SMU 
XCfor the last 
five years.

It was another busy April/May with our teams participating in the UVic All Comers meets, All Schools Relays, a tri-meet 
with Oak Bay and Eugene Oregon and of course the main events - Lower Island, Island, and Provincial championships. 
Ms. Tabacco, a sprint, hurtle, and high jump expert, and new edition to the SMU Track and Field coaching staff and 
Ms. Keziere would like to thank ALL participants (about 80 grade 8-12 students) for their commitment to the team and 
their excellent effort. 

With the help of lots of grade 9 and lO's our senior team did it again for the fourth consecutive year. LOWER ISLAND 
CHAMPIONS!! As usual it was a combination of some talent, a lot of hard work, and mass participation that pulled us 
through. We gave up the Island title for the first time in four years, but were very pleased with our second placing overall. 
Sixteen athletes qualified for the Provincial and were very inspired by the athletes on the mainland. 

With the addition of many new enthusiastic athletes our Grade 8, 9, 10 team placed fourth in the Lower Island meet 
and twelfth on the Island. There is a lot of potential in this group and we look forward to these athletes competing again 
next year.

Jr., 2nd XI Field Hockey 



The Junior Field 
Hockey team had a 
fantastic 1990 season 
demonstrating that 
SMU will remain a 
dominant force infield 
hockey for many years 
to come. 

The team won the In- 
dependent Schools 
Association Tourna- 
ment, placed fourth in 
the city, and sixth on 
the Island. All three 
placements were im- 
provements from last 
year. However, the big- 
gest achievements of 
the season were noted 
in the girls ' determina- 
tion, teamwork and 
skill development.

The 2nd XI hockey 
team again competed in 
the single A league and, 
to their credit, had a 
solid season. SMU is 
fortunate to have 
enough girls for two 
teams and this gives 
these athletes the op- 
portunity to play com- 
petitive hockey in a 
high calibre league. 
The wins do not come 
easily for the girls; how- 
ever, their hard work 
was rewarded with a 
win and a tie in 10 
starts. 

Special mention 
should be given to 

Lisha Scott, Simran Grewal, and Clare Mockrie as these athletes were given the opportunity to move up from the 2nd 
team, and play with the 1st XI, at different times during the season. Clare and Lisha joined the 1st XI for both the Island 
and Provincial Championships. Well done to all these girls who participated with the hockey program this year. Good luck 
next season.

The SMU girls 1st hockey team were again undefeated in league play this year, compiling an outstanding 40 goals for 
and 3 against record in 10 games. Our success continued throughout the season as we captured the ISA tournament at 
Brentwood in October and made a clean sweep of the Island Championships. This culminated in a convincing 5-0 thrashing 
of Glenlyon-Norfolk in the final, which was held at the University of Victoria. 

Then it was off to Castlegar for the provincial championships in early November. The weather was a concern for players 
and organizers alike. However, the skies cleared and the first two days of the toumy were cold but sunny. Unfortunately 
the team did not fare as well as the weather and after the preliminary round-robin the girls finished third in their pool. 
As a result we then played to place fifth through eighth. Our game was set for Saturday morning against Lambrick Park 
and we awoke, surprised to find 4" of snow upon the ground. We did play the game (if you could call it that) and ended 
up winning 1-0 in a match that will be remembered more for its slips and slides (right, Steph Isherwood?) than for the 
demonstration of any real hockey skills. In the end, we settled for 5th place tie with Crofton House of Vancouver. It was 
not the result we had hoped for, but it will definitely be a tournament to remember. 

I would like to thank all the girls for their effort and commitment to this season. Special thanks and good luck to Zeus, 
Shauna, Ish, Ayotte, Tard, Sog, and Horse - Solid effort. And to those returning next year . . . Fitter Patter.

The Colts A XV enjoyed a very successful season this year under the direction of coaches Mr. Bruce Kuklinski and Mr. 
Rhodri Samuels. The team was undefeated in the City League and Playoffs. In the South Island Final SMU beat Claremont 
(24-8) to become South Island champions. Then in a postponed and drawn-out Island Tournament the Colts defeated Caribi 
(31-0) and Stellys (12-0) which placed them in the Island Final against Robran of Campbell River. This game was played 
in Nanaimo under good conditions and the colts were victorious (18-0). This earned them the title of Island Champions. 
In ISA league play, the team opened the season with a confident (26-3) victory over St. Georges. The Colts then went to 
record two victories each against Shawnigan, Brentwood and Collingwood. But in the last game of ISA league play, the 
team faced a much more determined and organized St. Georges team, and they recorded their first and only defeat (25-18). 
This allowed them to share the title of ISA champions with St. Georges. 

The Colts B and C teams also enjoyed very successful seasons, winning the majority of their ISA games and playing 
attractively in the process. Most pleasing of all was that over 60 players represented the squad, a number of whom had 
not played before. 

Many thanks must go of course to Mr. Kuklinski and Mr. Samuels for their superb coaching and also to everyone who 
supported the team over this long, but most entertaining season. 

Congratulations Chaps!

The grand old game does not build character - it reveals it. The truth of this statement and how it applies to the U-15 
squad became more apparent as the season progressed. The squad showed tremendous collective character as well as 
revealing some "characters" within its ranks. 

On its field the "A" team played 12 games, winning 10 and losing 2. Victories, home and away, were gained over Shaw- 
nigan, Brentwood, Collingwood, and Stelly's school, St. George's remained our nemesis. Two great games of rugby were 
lost by the narrowest of margins - 1 point and 3 points - our day will come! 

We will never forget: The "B" team performance at St. Georges in coming back from a 16-6 deficit at the half to win 
21-16 and share the I.S.A. title, Carlos' commitment to training when the colder weather arrived, Steve Price's ability 
to turn defence into an attack with speed and decisiveness, Andrew Shostak's tackling against Langley when he came of 
age in rugby, the fire in Andrew Barry's belly when he ran on to the field, Arturo's interpretation of the offside law in 
rucks and mauls, the humour and humanism displayed on bus and ferry rides. 

Good luck in your future rugby endeavors.

1st XV Rugby

It was with great trepidation and excitement that the Senior Rugby program opened its season in April for the first time. 
The official season began at the start of the third term with a game against Desborough College, Berkshire, England. It 
was an excellent game, in which much promise was shown in a deserved 13-6 victory. 

The High School League featured the 1st and 2nd XVs in the Tier 1 Howard Russell competition, with the 3rd XV 
involved in the Tier ## Col. Hodgins division. 

The 3rd XV had their work cut out for them, playing against Oak Bay II, Stelly's I, and Glenlyon Norfolk I in the league, 
but finished the season in fine style with marvellous victories against the latter two teams. The forwards were always com- 
petitive, winning much good ball, while the backs ran strongly to score some exciting tries. 

The 2nd XV had the similarly difficult task of playing all of the other schools 1st XVs in the premier competition. Al- 
though giving away much in terms of size and speed, the side gelled into a cohesive unit, recording excellent wins against 
Belmont and Claremont before finishing the season with a fine win against Mt. Doug. Only Oak Bay proved to be too 
strong for them in this highly competitive league. When the forwards were able to win enough ball, the backs were always 
dangerous and capable of scoring tries. Tom Petzing became a commanding general at scrum half, releasing the strong 
running David Hamilton, Chris Isherwood, Jim Anderson and Peter Robb. Ryan Horn, Brian Scanlan and Trevor Parkes 
worked tirelessly to produce enough ball while Sean Higgins, Clive Southcombe, and Bryce Dearborn provided the all 
important link between them. 

The first XV enjoyed convincing wins against Parkland, Mt. Douglas, Belmont, Esquimalt and Claremont before meeting 
Oak Bay for the league championship. The event attracted much interest, as the two teams were ranked first and second 
in the province, and both went into the game unbeaten. Remarkably, over seven hundred people ringed the field as Oak 
Bay got off to a great start, kicking three penalty goals in the first half. As expected their backs looked dangerous, but 
outstanding tackling and superb defensive organization kept them a safe distance from the try line. Slowly but surely the 
forwards gained the necessary dominance, scoring a well executed back try, before taking the lead with a second forward 
rush to give us a narrow 13-9 victory. It was a game thoroughly enjoyed by all.

It was an excited and tension filled squad that arrived at Thunderbird Stadium to play for the provincial title. A testy 
and nervous start was inevitable, but once the side got into the flow of the game there was no looking back. An outstanding 
team performance, featuring seven tries, all scored by the backs, supported and made by the forwards, produced a final 
result of 37-3. It was a great final to a marvellous season and televised for posterity too!! It was also SMU's first B.C. 
Rugby Championship. 

The team was well served in the front row by the cornerstones of the pack, Jamie Scott and Don Sutton, who showed 
tremendous physical commitment when it really mattered. Ryan Gillespie was a quick and outstanding hooker. Robert McTav- 
ish and Brendan Barry, two skillful giants in the engine room, lent added support around the field. In an outstanding back 
row combination, Chris May and Josh Ball covered a lot of ground, making great inroads into the opposition, while Joe 
Gregory masterminded the plays around the base of the scrum. Joe, along with Richard Stone, provided a crucial link be- 
tween backs and forwards with many enterprising forays into the depths of the opposition defence, creating several tries 
for the other players. 

It's not often that the iron man of any side plays fiy-half, but Jason Penaluna was an essential ingredient to our success. 
He played consistently well in every game, kicking superbly and supporting the ball whenever possible. Jason Reynolds 
was a steady and consistent centre, distributing well to the strong, determined running wings, Milan Uzelac and Chad Be- 
van, who scored some great tries between them. The unpredictable brilliance of Jeremy Cordle at full back gave us many 
spectacular moments to savour, as well as the odd heart attack! Finally, Scott McQeen was not only a tireless worker on 
the field but a superb leader and captain. He had the total respect of all the players and must be congratulated for an 
outstanding job in every way. 

I would like to express my thanks to Grenfell Featherstone and John Mclntyre for their great efforts with the 3rd XV 
squad, and to Ian Hyde-Lay for his brilliant technical expertise, and for doing the bulk of the administration, not only 
in school but also as the commissioner of the Victoria High School League.

The Junior Girls' Soccer Team had a very successful year. The team was unbeaten to win its city 
league pool, but then lost to Spencer in the playoffs. The team advanced to the Island semi-finals, 
where, unfortunately, we again lost to Spencer, this time in a penalty shootout, after regulation and 
overtime failed to produce a goal. 

This resulted in an overall 5th place finish on the Island. Well done to all players.

At the start of the season, with a number of returning players led by Sara Card and Shauna Pengelly, 
and newly appointed coaches Mr. Parker and Mr. Penaluna, the team was understandably optimistic. Un- 
fortunately, we did not do as well as we hoped, in a league which features traditional powerhouses such 
as Oak Bay. Still, all the players battled valiantly to the end and were rewarded with a 3-1 win over 
Reynolds in the season finale. 

Jenny Millar emerged as a star in goal, while Jemima Schmidt scored the goal that quieted the Headmaster! 

Well done to all.

The Junior Boys' team enjoyed a fine season, winning the ISA U16 title, finishing 2nd to Arbutus in the 
City competition, before placing fifth in the Island event having lost a heartbreaker in the semifinals on penalty 
kicks. 

More than twenty players represented the side, with Jon Edgell, Renton Leversedge, Robert Card, Ilja Herb, 
and Jason Sturgis consistently excellent. Many of the team should challenge for places in the 1st XI in 1991-1992. 

Best of luck with your fixture soccer endeavors.

Senior Boys' Soccer 



1990-1991 was a significant year in SMU athletics, as the school fell in line with the Public School leagues. This meant 
that for the first time in the school's history, we did not participate in the ISA Rugby competitions. Instead, the school 
entered the greater Victoria High School Soccer League. 

Despite a convincing win over Vic High, it soon became obvious that we were less skillful than our opponents, and needed 
some hard work. To a degree this proved successful, although a fairly wide gap remained between us and league powerhouses 
Mt. Doug and Spectrum. Indeed, along with these two perennial Colonist Cup sides, the league had the most depth ever 
as Claremont, Oakbay, Belmont, and Reynolds were also strong. 

A final record of 5-3-1 was nearly good enough to qualify for the Colonist Cup semi-finals, but alas, a three to one home 
defeat to Belmont put paid to these wishes. Obviously disappointed, we then fell three to one to Reynolds in the Colonist 
Shield Final. 

Milan Uzelac scored a team high of 14 goals (and second in the league), while Andy Leung and Jeremy Cordle were 
also performed dangerously. Too often, however, good build-up work was marred by poor finishing. In midfield Jason Rey- 
nolds, Jason Penaluna and the Indefatigable Yan Monroy all had many fine moments, while Greg Miller and Ryan Gillespie 
in the back four proved solid and reliable throughout the season. In goal Gerald Ip made a number of brilliant saves to 
keep us in several games. 

With seven returnees, some talented juniors, and the arrival of 1990 BC MVP Stephen Nash from Mt. Doug, the team 
should be better in 1991-1992, though the city competition should again be intense. 

Best of luck!!

Team Tennis 




(L to R): Back Row: Mr. I. Hyde-Lay. A. Jaffer. S. Wall. C. Michel, B. Chan Middle Row: P. Lewis. N. Marks, J. Ellis, F. Scanlan, C. Middleton. 
Front Row: J. Kwon. D. Tarangle. G. Ip. T. Hoskins, E. Choi. Absent: Mr B. Kuklinski. 

The 1991 season began fast and furiously with a promising win over Mt. Douglas. With the girls being the 
strength of the team, wins were recorded over Parkland, Claremont and Lambrick Park. Then, in the city play- 
offs, repeats over Lambrick Park and Mt. Douglas put us first in the Lower Island. 

In the Island Play-offs we defeated Shawnigan, but due to a lack of available time a mutually-agreed coin-toss 
decided the Island final, with us losing to Brentwood College. In the B.C. 's. placement in a difficult pool with 
eventual winners Sentinel left us in the consolation round and 12th overall. This was a little disappointing, 
but it was a learning experience for everyone. At the ISA tournaments, the Junior boys placed 3rd and the 
Senior boys 4th, with the Senior girls the deserving winners. 

Overall, some great tennis was played by the girls, especially by Catherine Lambe and Pam Lewis, with Susie 
Wall, Jennifer Ellis and Nancy Marks having their moments. On the boys' side, Gerald Ip improved tremen- 
dously and Trevor Hoskins showed potential that will be needed in the future. To all, well done and thank you 
for an enthusiastic, enjoyable time.

Cycling 




(Left to Right): Back Row: A. Luckhurst. A Wardle, K. Ewan, K. Wallis. D. Smith, E. du Temple. 3rd Row: Mr A. Jones, M McAnhur, A. Shostak, 
R Yeh, T Bruce, K Benzon, Mr W Buckingham 2nd Row: A. Field, D. Bong, A. Pospisilik, C Jantzen, T Pengilly. Front Row: H. Ross, G. Miller, 
J Winters, C Burdett. 

The SMU Cycling team was very active since the opening of school in September. Great interest was shown in mountain 
bike cycling this year. Most of our fall and winter activities centred on this area. Weekend "off-road" training rides were 
held in the Victoria Highlands and the Malahat under the guidance of the two coaches, Mr. Alan .Jones and Mr. Bill Buck- 
ingham. Several SMU riders participated in open (non-school) mountain bike races during the winter and acquitted them- 
selves very well. 

A secondary school cycling league was formed last year and has proven to be successful. This year the concept was aug- 
mented to include a five-race series in the spring. Alan Jones was the Commissioner of the league. The race series included 
two mountain bike races, a hillclimb, a road race around Shawnigan Lake, and a circuit race. 

The SMU riders put in a steady performance in the series to earn fourth in the team competition. Can Burdett again 
dominated the girls ' races, as she did last year, placing first in the individual category. Tamsyn Pengilly, new to the sport, 
made a consistently valiant effort and placed fourth overall. Parkland and Oak Bay were the strong schools in the Junior 
Boys' category, but we had a vibrant group of grade 9 boys riding in their first year. Andrew Shostak placed seventh and 
Cameron Jantzen was tenth overall — an excellent beginning. Mt. Douglas was once again the powerhouse in the Senior 
Boys' category, taking the team award. Jason Winters from our school, however, placed first overall in the individual cat- 
egory. This was due to consistency and all-round ability throughout the different types of events. This was an amazing 
feat, as he was competing against some of the strongest young riders in Canada. Jason also won the school's Best All Round 
Cyclist trophy and proved to be the leader of a team of enthusiastic, positive riders.

are up in arms 



Boarding 



77iK must go down as the most disrupted and difficult beginning to a new year anyone could have imagined. With 
only 5 days until the boarders were due to arrive. New House was burned to the ground. 

I recall the sick feeling inside, helplessly standing by as the roof became engulfed by flames. As the sun rose, it 
became a very sad sight indeed. Following some decent and sensitive broadcasting on the radio asking for help with 
accommodations, we quickly became inundated with callers offering their services. The deep sadness was quickly trans- 
formed into joy as the school and local community pulled together with great concern and compassion. Within a matter 
of hours all 90 misplaced students had been found a temporary home for the first 2 months of the year. It was a 
strange scene as the senior boarders arrived at school to be immediately ushered off into waiting cars and taxis to 
go off to their new homes. The boarders were given no time to reflect on what had happened as term got off to a 
dynamic and busy start. Many enjoyed the new adventure but were also missing the camaraderie and spirit of living 
on campus. Those of us still here were also missing the vivacity of our senior students. 

The shock of the fire did not fully manifest itself until the portables started to arrive and the grim reality of what 
lay ahead really struck home. No luxurious residence to cap off a full and enjoyable school career. A few sticky days 
lay ahead until the students came to terms with what had to be. Juliette Sacks and Ashif Jaffer worked tirelessly 
with their teams of prefects to smooth troubled waters and to raise morale. 

I am personally very grateful to them and to the assistant house staff who worked so hard to support them; Mrs. 
G. Samuel, Ms. M. Morrican, Mr. G. Nugent, Mr. Rollins and in particular Ms. Kathy Markham and Mr. Jeremy 
Goodwin who had the unenviable job of living amongst the students in the "spirit of Atco". 

Meanwhile, life continued relatively normally in International House with the same house staff as before Messrs. 
M. Owenflood, P. O'Fee, B. Kuklinski, and of course, Mr. Rhodri Samuel who sadly decided to return to Wales 
at the end of the school year. The House had a lovely surprise leaving party for Rhodri, Gaynor and Dafydd at Mt. 
Douglas Park, including a barbeque, magician and gifts from the House, all organized by the boys themselves, demon- 
strating their genuine affection for their house parents. We wish them ' 'all the best ' ' in their new position at Christ 
College, Brecon. The prefects who always have a challenging job in International House, performed very effectively 
and kept good order in the House. 

The enforced shrinkage in size of Harvey House to only twenty young boys made it a very easy house to run. Nev- 
ertheless the so called "tads" do consume inordinate amounts of time and we are extremely grateful for the care 
shown by Mrs. Barbara Leonard, Messrs. E. Jones, O. Jost and D. Craig and of course Mr. Nick Coghlen who also 
decided to leave SMU to pursue a long term ambition of working for the Foreign Office. I'm sure that his experiences 
working in Harvey House of employing tact, diplomacy and patience will hold Nick in good stead in his new position. 
The prefects in Harvey House this year were all grade XI students and they, too, performed their duties admirably. 
It's not easy to strike a balance of playing with the "tads" one minute and then demanding that they go to bed the next. 

This was not an easy year in residence and there were many frustrations and difficulties in "Atco Village". Nev- 
ertheless the final outcome was, looking from the outside, highly successful. A record breaking number of Provincial 
Scholarships amongst the day and boarding students, very successful sports seasons including a Provincial Cham- 
pionship and two very successful school productions in which boarders made significant contributions. I would like 
to think that the experiences of this year will hold the graduating boarders in good stead in the future, helping them 
to realize that adversities can be overcome through hard work, tolerance and compassion. I wish them all the very 
best in the future. 

Mr. Peter Tongue 
Head of Boarding
